Somali government troops backed by African Union forces have captured a key stronghold of al-Shabab militants. The AU says al-Shabab, who had held Barawe – about 200km south of Mogadishu – for six years, used it as a base to launch attacks on the capital. Residents said many of the militants had begun withdrawing from the key port town on Friday.
