At least 24 people were killed in southern Somalia after fighting between al-Shabab Islamist militants and government forces, residents and the rebel group said on Saturday.Al-Shabab launched an attack on government troops on Friday evening in the Awdigle district and Mubarak village in the Lower Shabelle region, south of the capital. The African Union's AMISOM peacekeeping force and Somali soldiers have pushed al-Shabab, which wants to topple the Western-backed government, into smaller pockets of territory, but the group still launches regular attacks from those areas.
