Mogadishu: Somali, African troops take key port from Shebab

Oct. 5, 2014 12:14 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 5, 2014 12:14 P.M.)
MOGADISHU (AFP) -- Somali troops backed by African peacekeepers on Sunday recaptured the last major port held by the Shebab, key to the financing of the Islamist militia, Somali officials told AFP.

"The army is in full control" of the port of Barawe, 200 kilometers (120 miles) southwest of Mogadishu, the Somali military official Abdi Mire said.

"The situation is calm, the militiamen had fled before the forces reached the town," said the provincial governor Abdukadir Mohamed Nur.
