There are a very vicious people and many vicious institutions, whose successes must depend on disparaging some achievements, misrepresenting views of individuals, societies and their struggles, families, institutions and their worldviews, etc. By so doing such people deceive themselves believing that they are better off and could make a better future for themselves.

Al-Shabab ‘kills 30′ at AU military base

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

At least 30 people have been killed after gunmen attacked an African Union military base in southern Somalia, witnesses say.

A suicide car bomber drove into the main gates of the base in Leego, along the main road connecting the capital, Mogadishu and the city of Baidoa.

The militant Islamist group al-Shabab says its fighters have taken control of the base but this is not confirmed.

Al-Shabab is battling Somalia’s government for control of the country.

The base is manned by Burundian soldiers from the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom), which has more than 20,000 troops in the country.

Amisom confirmed on its Twitter account that an attack was ongoing, but has not given any details on casualties.

Leego residents have seen militants burning vehicles, carrying off weapons and removing the bodies of their fighters killed in the attack, reports the BBC’s Mohamed Moalimu from Mogadishu.
