Government troops occupy old al-Shabab base

African Union and Somali government forces enter areas of Mogadishu following fighters' withdrawal.

    Somalia's president is claiming victory after al-Shabab fighters began pulling out of the capital Mogadishu.

    Officials say it is the most significant gain for the UN-backed transitional government in years.

    Al-Shabab say it is a change in military tactics rather than a retreat.
