In Somalia, members of the terrorist group al-Shabab attacked an African Union military base killing at least 19 AU soldiers in a car bombing and firefight. The death toll was provided by a high-ranking Somali official who says that a similar number of AU soldiers were captured by the al-Qaida-linked militants. For more on the security situation in Somalia, VOA’s Vincent Makori is joined by Abdi Aynte, Somalia’s Minister of Planning and International Cooperation.
