SOMALIA, Kismayo: In a handout photograph released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team 03 October, a fighter of the pro-government Ras Kimboni Militia Brigade stands on a road in the Somali port city of Kismayo while a team of engineers serving with the Kenyan Contingent of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) search a former police station for improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The Al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab withdrew from the city on 02 October after AMISOM troops, Somali National Army (SNA) forces and the pro-government Ras Kimboni Brigade militia entered and captured Kismayo without a fight. During their security sweep, AMISOM engineers found one device planted in the perimeter wall next to the entrance, which was destroyed by a controlled explosion. AU-UN IST PHOTO / STUART PRICE.
