Recent clashes broke out between rival pro-government clan-based militias in the Somali port city of Kismayo leaving at least 11 people dead and many injured. Several clans have fought for control of Kismayo since September 2012, when a Kenyan army contingent drove al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda-linked militant group, out of its main stronghold.
