Somalia: Army repels attack on a military base near Mogadishu


Somali government forces fended off an attack by the al-Shabaab militant group near the capital city of Mogadishu Friday night, local authorities said, Garowe Online reports.

The al-Qaeda-linked militants attacked Afgoye town in Lower Shabelle region, about 30 km southwest of Mogadishu from different directions, in an attempt to overrun a military camp run by SNA.

“They attacked the town and our forces responded. The fighting lasted a while before our forces defeated them,” Osman Aden, a senior Somali army official, told Garowe Online by phone.

The officer said the militants suffered injuries but did not indicate any casualties on his forces.
