Al-Shabaab militants on Tuesday night attempt to launch attacks on a military base belonging to AMISOM were thwarted and militants repulsed.
The militants in a coordinated move tried to breach entry in a military base manned by Burundian troops battling the militant Al-Shabaab terrorist group under AMISOM but were met with fierce resistance.
Burundian scouts spotted a group of militants approaching and raised an alarm. Quick response from Burundian-AMISOM troops saw several militants killed while other reportedly fled.
The militants with mortars were targeting a military base run by Burundian troops near Elasha Biyaha, about 18 kilometers southwest of Mogadishu.
