Somali armed group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for an attack on a military compound in Mogadishu where Somali intelligence officials train, claiming it killed “many intelligence forces”.

“We captured the building and we are fighting inside it,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al-Shabab’s military operations spokesman, told Reuters news agency on Sunday.

Somali government sources told Al Jazeera that they regained control of the compound after foiling an attempt by the armed group to break into it.

They said a car bomb was destroyed before it reached the compound and four al-Shabab fighters had been killed. There were no victims among security forces, the government sources said.

A witness said a loud blast followed by gunfire was heard early on Sunday in the centre of the capital near the headquarters of the National Intelligence and Security Agency.

On Saturday, al-Shabab fighters killed at least eight officers in a raid on a police station near the capital, police and the militants said.

“Al-Shabab killed eight of my colleagues and took three of our cars,” Major Abdikadir Hussein, a police officer, told Reuters from Afgoi.

Al-Shabab, which wants to topple the Western-backed government in Mogadishu, claimed responsibility for the raid on Afgoi town, 30km southwest of Mogadishu.

"Hidden manna from the promised "White Stone", Rev 2:17 P1446:5, 131:3.3 . . . It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; TO SEE NO SIN WHERE THERE IS SIN. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your misery BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One. 131:3.4 (1447.1) “Cheerfulness and gladness are the rewards of deeds well done and to the glory of the Immortal. No man can rob you of the liberty of your own mind. When the faith of your religion has emancipated your heart, when the mind, like a mountain, is settled and immovable, then shall the peace of the soul flow tranquilly like a river of waters. Those who are sure of salvation are forever free from lust, envy, hatred, and the delusions of wealth. While faith is the energy of the better life, nevertheless, must you work out your own salvation with perseverance. If you would be certain of your final salvation, then make sure that you sincerely seek to fulfill all righteousness. Cultivate the assurance of the heart which springs from within and thus come to enjoy the ecstasy of eternal salvation. ~~ Urantia Book Paper 131 ~~
