This handout photo released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team shows on December 12, 2012 shows soldiers of the Somali National Army (SNA) dismount from a fighting vehicle (R) alongside an armoured column of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) in Jowhar in Middle Shabelle region north of the capital Mogadishu on December 10, 2012. African Union troops and Somali forces seized the formerly Islamist-held town of Jowhar Sunday, wresting control of one of the largest remaining towns held by the Al-Qaeda linked Shebab, officials said. The loss of Jowhar is a significant blow to the Shebab, who have lost a string of towns in recent months to the 17,000-strong AU force, as well as to Ethiopian troops who invaded Somalia last year from the west.
