KDF storms Kismayu in pictures

Troops from the Kenyan Contingent of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) sit on the mid-section of a military truck as they form-up in the early morning ahead of an advance on the Somali port city of Kismayo. Kenyan AMISOM troops moved into and through Kismayo, the hitherto last major urban stronghold of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab yesterday, on their way to the city’s airport without a shot being fired following a two-month operation to liberate towns and villages across southern Somalia and Kismayo itself. Al Shabaab, the once feared and brutal extremist group, has lost a succession of strategic towns and villages across Somalia to AMISOM and Somali National Army (SNA) forces in sustained operations against them since they withdrew from fixed positions in the capital Mogadishu in August of 2011.
