Top Al-Shabaab Commander Killed in Somalia

African Union soldiers killed a top al-Shabaab commander in Kuday, Somalia, Saturday, after the Alshabab launched a failed attack on an army installation in the area, military officials said.
Al-Shabaab Commander Bashe Nure Hassan was one of two al-Shabaab militant killed in the engagement that followed the foiled attack, Kenya’s Ministry of Defense said in a statement.
African Union troops used mortar fire and machine guns to repel the attack, the statement said, noting “scores” of al-Shabaab members were believed injured in the fighting.
The AMISOM forces recovered three rifles, a satellite phone and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the terrorists. No casualties were reported on the AMISOM side.
