Somali militants attack African Union base south of capital
By Feisal Omar and Abdi Sheikh MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali al Shabaab militants fought a gunbattle with African Union troops after ramming a car laden with explosives into their base south of the capital Mogadishu early on Friday, military officials and a spokesman for the group said. The dawn attack in Leego - along the main road connecting Mogadishu and the city of Baidoa - came as residents gathered for morning prayers. "A car bomb rammed into the AU base in Leego and this was followed by heavy exchange of gunfire," Major Nur Olow, a military officer, told Reuters.
