At least 21 people have been killed in heavy fighting between Islamist militants and pro-government forces in Somalia.

Al-Shabab insurgents reportedly pounded several neighbourhoods in the capital Mogadishu with mortar shells.

In the south of the city African Union troops tried to push them back. That saw one AU soldier killed and two others wounded.

In all nearly 80 people were injured in the fighting.

Considered Somalia’s most dangerous militant group, al-shabab, has launched a series of attacks recently declaring what it calls a ‘new’ war against the Somali government.
