Somalia: Al-Shabaab says it killed 60 soldiers at ethiopian base a Halgan


Al-Qaeda-linked militants said they raided a base used by Ethiopian troops in central Somalia, killing at least 60 people. An African peacekeeping force said it repulsed the Islamists’ assault and inflicted dozens of casualties.

Al-Shabaab detonated a car-bomb at the base in the town of Halgan in Hiran region, before fighters stormed the facility, the group said in a statement published on the website of Radio Andalus, a broadcaster that supports its insurgency.

The militants said 16 of their members died, including the suicide bomber. The multinational African Union Mission in Somalia, or Amisom, said it killed 110 of the militants, China’s state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Ethiopian soldiers are part of Amisom, which is trying to restore security to the Horn of Africa country, where civil war has raged for more than two decades.
