The commander of the Somali National Army General Abdullahi Ali Anod has said that special forces have destroyed the main radio station of the al-Shabab militant group, Radio Andalus.
As part of the operation in Mubarak town, southern Somalia, troops also destroyed three vehicles full of explosives.
General Anod added that forces also seized an al-Shabab weapons depot that was full of explosives.
Yesterday, the Somali National Army – supported by US forces – overran three villages including Mubarak in Lower Shabelle Region, which were held by al-Shabab.
The group later reported on their website, Somali Memo, that they took over the villages after the allied forces withdrew.
