    Kenyan forces in Somalia killed more than 40 Al Shabaab militants in Southern Somalia and destroyed nine enemy vehicles in attacks on Wednesday.
    Three Kenyan soldiers were slightly injured in the battles, according to Col Cyrus Oguna of Kenya Defence Forces.
    Military spokesman Maj Emanuel Chirchir said atleast 40 militants were killed in the attacks.
    "Al Shabaab casualty report 40 confirmed neutralized, 30 AK 47 captured, 1 Doshika and 1 PKM captured," said Maj Chirchir in a Twitter posting.
    He added six Somalia National Army personnel were injured in the latest strike but they were all out of danger.
    The incident happened about kilometers East Hosingo Township near the Indian Ocean in Southern Somalia at about 5am.
    Maj Chirchir said Al Shabaab attack was likely to be a diversionary tactic to allow infiltration of Improvised Explosive Devises in the Northern sector.
    Separate reports from Somalia indicate that the International Commission of the Red Crescent ICRC has entered Gedo province and other areas liberated by the Kenya Defence Forces and their Somali National Army allies.
    Earlier reports indicated widening splits within Al Shabaab with allegations that one of the militants' leaders Ali Dheere had fled to Yemen with several fighters.

    hawa al shabaab wameshaishiwa nguvu coz wamelegezwa sana kivita. halafu kuna mkubwa wao alikamatwa so inawezekana kuna baadhi ya siri alitoa. kumbuka kenya inasaidiwa na ufaransa baada ya ufaransa kutoa ndege za kivita tena za kisasa.

    assistance in military capabilities is confined to Kenyan doctrines....assistance from foreign powers is minimal, intelligence gathering and pathfinding elements is by KDF. Foreign powers provide only armor which isnt free (bought)...atleast at the moment no nation has done so freely, ''Kenya had to mobilise its war fund''. With a transition to amisom its a relief. Alshabaab are a gone case.

    seems KDF is taking the fight to somalia....independent reports put the figures of slain alshabaab to be as high as 200 if not more. 40 is apparently a media damage cntrl stunt by the Colonel and his Major.
