The Somali insurgent movement Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen (Al-Shabab; Al-Shabaab) has denied claims by the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) claims that it, aided by Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) soldiers, has driven insurgents from Dayniile on the outskirts of Mogadishu. Al-Shabab has issued photographs showing its fighters and governor of Banaadir, Muhammad Hasan 'Umar Abu 'Abd al-Rahman, in Dayniile, though it is possible these photographs were taken at an earlier time.
