Working under a UN mission, Kenyan soldiers Tuesday killed seven al-Shabaab militants in a southern region of Somalia, near Kenya’s border, also liberating a mosque and police station from militant control, said a military official.

Kenya military spokesman Lt. Col. Paul Njuguna said in a media statement that the dawn attack was planned and executed by Kenyan soldiers under the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

“Today, 24 January 2017, at dawn, Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers operating under AMISOM, while on routine pacification operations in the general area of Badhaadhe, successfully launched an offensive operation on al-Shabaab terrorists who had taken control of a mosque and police station,” Njuguna said.

“KDF – Kenya Defence Forces – soldiers overwhelmed the terrorists, killing seven (7). Following the engagement, eight (8) AK-47 rifles and ammunition were captured,” he added.
