Al-Shabaab Militants Attack Two Somali Military Bases

[AnNahar] Al-Shabaab
...... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
Islamists on Wednesday carried out attacks on two Somali military bases, using a suicide vehicle bombing and dozens of heavily armed krazed killers, a military official said.

African Union
...a union consisting of 53 African states, most run by dictators of one flavor or another. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. Established in 2002, the AU is the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was even less successful...
troops stepped in to help repel the second, larger attack, after a jacket wallah drove a vehicle packed with explosives onto a bridge leading to the Qoryoley army base some 95 kilometres (59 miles) west of Mogadishu and detonated it.

Earlier they had attacked the Ceel-salini military base some 30 kilometres away.
...Al Arabiya calls it El Salini.
"The Death Eaters carried out an ... attack on the military bases at Qoryoley and Ceel-salini but our brave boys repelled them, they (Shabaab) have suffered heavy casualties this morning and the army is in full control in the both areas now," said Mohammed Adan, a Somali military commander in a nearby town.

"They have destroyed part of the bridge across the entrance to Qoryoley where the Somali military base is located using a vehicle loaded with explosives."

He said the AU peacekeeping force AMISOM had helped fight the al-Qaeda linked krazed killers.
