Ethiopia Base in Somalia Attacked by al-Shabab

9 June 2016 World

Somali Islamist militant group al-Shabab says it has killed more than 40 Ethiopian soldiers in an attack on an African Union base in central Somalia.
Reports say they had heard a huge bang followed by a heavy exchange of gunfire.
The AU mission (Amisom) has confirmed the attack but not the casualties.
Amisom supports the government as it fights to regain control of the country from al-Shabab.
In January, al-Shabab targeted a Kenyan base in el-Ade, southern Somalia.
It said it had killed more than 100 soldiers but the Kenyan authorities have not confirmed the death toll.
