AU forces battle to secure Somalia

Peacekeepers say they are making progress in defeating al-Shabab and establishing control over most of the country.

    Somalia is just days away from electing a new President, but the government is not in control of much of the country's territory.

    African Union peacekeepers, known as AMISOM, have divided the country into four sectors, and they say they are making progress in establishing that control, however.
