At least four fighters from the al-Shabaab group were killed in southern Somalia late on Wednesday.

The Somalia-based al-Qaeda-affiliated group had attacked a military post in the newly liberated town of Awdhegle in the province of Lower Shabelle, officials said.

Mohamud Ahmed, a Somali National Army officer in the region, told Anadolu Agency that the U.S.-trained special forces known as Danab killed four al-Shabaab militants after fighting in Awdhegle town.

"A group of al-Shabaab militants attacked in our military post in Awdhegle town. We received intelligence information regarding their target and I can confirm to you that we killed four militants," Ahmed said.

Somali special forces backed by African Union forces (AMISOM) in Somalia retook on Tuesday the strategic town located 70 kilometers (43 miles) Southern Somali capital Mogadishu.
