Mogadishu – Rebels from the Islamist al-Shabaab group attacked a military base in southern Somalia early on Monday, killing at least 10 soldiers and burning two military vehicles, officials said.

African Union and Somali troops launched an offensive this year that has driven al-Shabaab out of its last major strongholds. Monday’s attack highlights the challenge of halting guerrilla-style raids by the al-Qaeda-aligned group.
