Somalia: Kenyan troops go into brief skirmish with Al-Shabab

Mogadishu Wednesday 31 March 2010 SMC 

Somaliweyn – Mohammed Omar Hussein

The Kenyan troops who were recently deployed in the boarders between Kenya and Somalia for security purposes have gone head to head with Al-Shabab an armed rival Islamist faction in Somalia.

The skirmish between the Kenyan troops and the Al-Shabab took place in a location called Xar-xaar which is geographically located in the boarders between the two countries.

An unverified report which Somaliweyn Website has received from the ground says that 3 of the Kenyan troops were wounded in the skirmish.

The Kenyan troops have received auxiliary troops from the towns of Liboy and Diif, and in this case the Kenyan troops have at wide length advance in the interior of Somalia.

The update reports which are coming from the ground say that there are no exchanges of fire heard in the area.

Al-shabab has several times said that they will attack Kenya at any cost, if they don’t stop their meddling in the Somali affairs.
