Three AU soldiers, civilian killed in Shebab attack on base

A picture taken on December 25, 2014 shows the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) headquarters, located within the high-security compound of Mogadishu airportThree African Union soldiers and a civilian were killed Thursday after Shebab militants staged a brazen attack on the force’s heavily fortified headquarters in Somalia. The AU force known as AMISOM said troops regained control of the base in Mogadishu after a gunfight that left five of the attackers dead while three others were captured. “Three AMISOM soldiers and a civilian contractor unfortunately lost their lives,” AMISOM said in a statement, updating earlier information that said the four had been injured in the Christmas Day attack. The statement did not mention the nationalities of the victims, but a contingent of Ugandan soldiers is in charge of the base.
