SOMALIA, Mogadishu: In a handout photograph released by the United Nations-African Union Information Support Team, a Ugandan soldier serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and troops from the Somali National Army (SNA) stand 20 January, on open ground outside Mogadishu University following an advance to capture the position and surrounding areas in insurgent Al Shabaab territory. SNA forces supported by AMSIOM today pushed 3.5km further north from their previous forward defensive line along the industrial road to take the strategically important area of and around Mogadishu Univeristy, the very furthest northern point of the Somali capital and where the Al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab planned and carried out attacks against the African Union mission, the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and targets within the Somali capital..
