Some fragments of the dreaded Al-Shabaab terrorist group have displayed corpses of soldiers and weapons reportedly seized from Kenyan army. According to African Spotlight, 2 Kenyan police officers are still missing after Wednesday night attack on Hamey police station in Garissa by Al-Shabaab militants.
In the same vein, the Islamist militant group al-Shabaab on Sunday, October 23, seized control of yet another town in central Somalia. A militant spokesman and a local official said it is the third city to fall to insurgents this month. On Sunday, an Ethiopian contingent abandoned the town of Halgan in the Hiran region, allowing the group’s fighters to enter soon after, said Abdiasis Abu Musab, al-Shabaab’s spokesman on military operations. A military offensive launched in 2014 by AU forces and the Somali army pushed out of major strategic centres, but the insurgents, who once held sway over much of the Horn of Africa country, still control some settlements and rural areas.
