Ugandan AMISOM troops in Somalia, 2012

Ugandan troops serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) stand during a briefing before advancing on a fighting patrol around an area they captured following a night-time ground advance two nights previous. Troops from both the Ugandan and Burundian contingents of AMISOM and the Somali National Army (SNA) units advanced on foot to the dense area of bush south of Elasha Biya, itself approx. 15km west of Mogadishu, which was hitherto occupied by the Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group Al Shabaab and being used to launch attacks along the Afgooye corridor, the main thoroughfare west of the Somali capital.
