New al-Shabaab claims don't include bombing

Mogadishu - The al-Shabaab extremist group is claiming responsibility for a number of recent attacks in Somalia - but not Saturday's huge truck bombing that left more than 300 people dead.
Somalia's government has blamed al-Shabaab for the country's deadliest attack. But the extremist group has not commented on it.
Instead, the SITE Intelligence Group says al-Shabaab in the past two weeks has claimed responsibility for two dozen attacks on Somali and African Union forces, as well as the killing of one government official and the wounding of another.
Al-Shabaab posted its latest claims on social media on Monday.
