Al-Shabab losing ground in Somalia

African Union and Kenyan government to launch joint offensive against armed group's last strongholds.

    The African Union and Kenyan government are understood to be planning a joint offensive in Somalia, trying to take the last remaining stronghold of al-Shabab in the city of Kismayo.

    The Somali armed group has been losing strategic ground in recent months, but it is feared that the fighters are being driven underground, sparking a long drawn-out guerilla war.
