Kenyan troops continue to defend Somali port

Forces who drove al-Shabab out of Kismayo eight months ago have stayed to maintain security.

Kenyan troops who took over the Somali port of Kismayo, once a stronghold of al-Shabab fighters, continue to fight against the armed group.

Eight months ago, the Kenyan forces, supported by local fighters, drove al-Shabab out of the city.

But members of the armed group remain in the area and African Union forces are trying to maintain security in the town.
