Al-Shabab said their fighters killed dozens of Kenyan troops in the attack.
Mujahideen fighters from the Commander Saleh An-Nabhani Battallion stormed the Kenyan Defence Forces base in the town of Eel-Adde, Gedo region, over-running the base and killing more than 63 Kenyan crusaders. the group said in a statement seen by Al Jazeera.
Injured and fallen KDF arrive at the Wilson Airport. Death toll stands at #103 according to my KDF source in Gedo. I have been in contact with a group of KDF servicemen detached from the rest headed towards Kenya border somewhere in Nakole after two days in the bush by this hour I believe they have been rescued. 12 KDF soldiers captured by Alshabab have spoken for the first time in an audio released today. There was an ambush by Alshabab on a KDF convoy late Saturday as reinforcement headed to El Adde from Elwak. KDF reportedly hit Wagaddud Shabab camp.
