    Al-Shabab, Somalia's Islamist rebel group, have given Al Jazeera exclusive access to film them in Mogadishu during the end of Ramadan.

    Despite their withdrawal from the capital, they say the move is purely tactical and they were able to celebrate Eid in the city.

    Shabab members told Al Jazeera that the group remains "fully in control" in some parts of the capital and that they have secretly infiltrated others.

    Al Jazeera's Rosie Garthwaite reports.
