Al Shabaab militants seize two towns in southern Somalia

“Islamist militants al Shabaab seized control of two towns over two days in southwestern Somalia, a spokesman for the group and local officials said on Saturday, less than a week after its fighters attacked an African Union base in the same area.

Al Shabaab said it had seized two small towns in the Lower Shabelle region – El Saliindi, 65 km (40 miles) south of Mogadishu en route to the port town of Marka, and Kuntuwarey, on the road between the capital and the port of Barawe.”
