The Kenyan navy has shelled Kismayo port city which is one of the last strongholds of Al-Shabaab.

Kenyan military spokesman,Col.Cyrus Oguna on Tuesday said the shelling is part of the efforts to flash out Al-Shabaab militants out of Kismayo.

Initially Kenyan Prime minster requested enough funding to takeover Kismayo port city from the Al-Qaeda surrogate in Somalia.

Residents in Kismayo said they have witnessed shelling in their city which instilled fear in them.

Recently the militant Islamist have blocked Kismayo residents to flee out of the town where they compelled elders to support the war they are engaged in.

The port city which is the major source of income for Al-shabaab is said to be hosting a population of 90,000, with another 77,000 living in surrounding areas and is popular with illegal exports of charcoal.
