Somali President condemns latest attack

On the same day the terror group also attacked the National Intelligence and Security Agency in the capital Mogadishu.

Somali President Hassan Sheik Mohamud has condemned the attack that left at least twelve people dead.

The town of Kunturwaarey was controlled by Al-Shabaab until Sunday.

They were pushed out by  African Union troops during an offensive which was also backed by government troops.

'There is no way we need to fire; we cannot fight if there is no resistance.

So we entered Kurtunwaarey without a single bullet that has been shot, we do not have to fire if we have not been fired at,' said Brigadier Dick Alum, AMISOM Contingent Commander.

Meanwhile, AMISOM is assuring residents of their safety.

'The al-Shabaab have made your children not go to school, the al-Shabaab has made you fail to get treatment, and the al Shabaab has made you fail to develop yourselves.,' he said.

The military campaign against al-Shabaab at the weekend was part of an AMISOM campaign to eliminate the group from Somalia.

On Sunday seven al-Shabaab members attacked a high security prison in central Mogadishu.

Somali President Hassan Sheik Mohamud ordered an inquiry into the attack that left 12 people dead.
