MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) At least 10 Somali militants were killed when Somali special forces - Danab - raided and destroyed a militant base in Lower Shabelle region, Military radio reported.

The attack took place near Leego village in Lower Shabelle region, where Al Shabaab had checkpoints to collect money from the locals to boost their economy.
