AND Somalia government ends latest crackdown on militants. 115 people die in Somali government assault on al-Qaida-linked militants in recent days
Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked [Al-Shabab] has on last Thursday used a smart method in which they could make families and relatives of the Ugandan and Burundian troops in Mogadishu to know the demise of their loved ones in a deadly combat in Mogadishu. On Tuesday the 22nd of February the African Union troops flanked by Somalis government soldiers freshly trained in Uganda and Ethiopia have carried out attack along the famous industrial street in Northwest of Mogadishu, in this attack the AU troops and the Somali government troops have overpowered the Al-Shabab faction and the AU troops with their fellow Somali soldiers have advanced to new areas and succeeded in conquering new areas including the former building of Shirkole officiale and the former building of the Ministry of Defense.
In fact the confrontation between the bilateral sides was so fierce and lasted for several hours in sequence, and in the mid of the battle 6 of Burundian infantry soldiers who have gone stray have fallen into the hands of Al-Shabab, and this has happened because many reasons the AU troops can simply differentiate the Somali government troops and Al-Shabab fighters, because both have duplicate camouflage uniform.
The Al-Shabab fighters have killed 5 out of the 6 soldiers who have lost their direction, and among them was only one Ugandan and the rest of the soldiers were from Burundi.
Thus the smart technique which Al-Shabab which has used was they have collect all the cell-phones of the dead AU troops, and have instructed the only alive Burundian soldier to call and inform the families and relatives of the killed soldiers, and hearing the sad news the wailing of women could be heard.
The life in hand Burundian soldier whose name is Nzumba has also informed the families and relatives of the deceased soldiers to rally and demonstrate their grievances to the Ministry of Defense.
The clever communications made by Al-Shabab has not had any effect to both the government of Burundi and Uganda and the troops of the two countries on the ground as well.
