Mogadishu, 13 October, 2019 — This afternoon at about 13:15hrs, al-Shabaab fired several mortar bombs into the Halane base camp, which houses AMISOM, UN and other international agencies committed to serving the people of Somalia.

Three AMISOM staff were slightly injured and have received treatment. The situation has since been contained.

Necessary precautionary measures have been taken to ensure the safety and security of our staff.

The attack by al-Shabaab will not diminish AMISOM’s resolve to carry out its important mandate to drive out the terrorists and bring lasting peace and security to Somalia.
