A radical Somali Islamist group fighting to overthrow the government in Somalia says it is exchanging fighters with rebels in Yemen.

An al-Shabaab spokesman told the BBC the group was sending forces to Yemen and receiving fighters in return because of its close links with the country.

Yemen has come under scrutiny after last month’s failed US airliner attack was linked to militants in the country.
