High officers of the transitional government of Somalia told all voices’ office in the Somali capital Mogadishu that they had entered the town early on Monday morning where they fought with fighters of Al-shabab who controlled there earlier.

“We had inflicted more casualties to Al-shabab forces in the town. We killed many of them and took over the control of several neighborhoods of the town for a while, but we left it after hours," said a government officer who declined to disclose his name.
