AMISOM Troops on Mogadishu's Frontline

A Ugandan soldier serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) mans the frontline in Maslah Town, on the northern city limit of Mogadishu.


Working with the forces of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government, AMISOM troops have managed to drive the Al Shabaab extremist group out of the Somali capital and provide a period of relative peace not seen in the city since 1991.
