More Somalis have begun crossing over to neighbouring Kenya after the Al Shabaab armed group attacked a border town.

On Friday, Al Shabaab tried to seize the Somali town of Dhobley, killing at least 10 pro-government troops and wounding dozens more.

The Kenyan military moved dozens of troops into the region to stop the fighting from spilling over the border.

Peter Greste reports from Dhobley.
