Battle for Somali capital rages on

Fighting between al-Shabab and government forces continues on outskirts of Mogadishu.

    It has been more than two weeks since al-Shabab fighters pulled out of the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

    But fighting has not stopped. The only difference is that the battle between the armed group and government forces backed by African Union troops has moved to the outskirts of the city.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri reports from the new frontline.
