Kismayo-(Puntland Mirror) Jubaland forces backed by Ethiopian troops under AMISOM on Saturday recaptured Bulo-gudud district from Al-Shabab militants, sources say.

Before the allied forces moved into the district, the both sides combated in the outskirts of the Bulo-gudud, according to the sources.

Bulo-gudud is small district, 30 kilometers north of Kismayo port town in Lower Juba region.

There are no independent reports on casualties until now.

Al-Shabab was ejected from Kismayo in 2012, but still has a presence in large areas of Juba regions.
