The Africa Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) said in a statement on Wednesday in Mogadishu that its troops and the Somali army killed at least 12 Al-Shabaab terrorists and injured a further 14 others in an ambush targeting the militants who were moving to Barire District in Lower Shabelle region on Monday.

“Al-Shabaab was routed from Mir-tugo town, and joint forces are patrolling the town and are in total control of it,” the statement said.

The statement also went onto say that the pro-Somali forces also captured a large cache of weapons from Al-Shabaab.

Fleeing Al-Shabaab sadly killed two innocent civilians in retaliation, the statement said.
