This comes as African Union (AU) troops and Somali government forces arrested at least 62 al-Shabab militants during an operation in the northwest of Mogadishu on October 25.

Earlier on October 12, more than 25 al-Shabab fighters were also killed and 30 others wounded in a firefight between government forces and the militants in southern Somalia.

Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991, when warlords overthrew former dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.

The Western-backed transitional government in Mogadishu has been battling al-Shabab fighters for the past five years and is propped up by thousands of African Union forces from Uganda, Burundi, and Djibouti.
