Somalia al shabaab rebels 2012 5 31

Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) soldiers leave on 29 May, 2012 after a clash with Al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab rebels, who ambushed the convoy of Somali President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed near Elasha. Two Somali soldiers were wounded when Shabaab gunmen opened fire as Ahmed drove down the Afgoye corridor, some 18 miles northwest of the capital Mogadishu, a key road and home to the world's largest concentration of displaced people, for the first time since its capture on May 26.
