Although still in control of large swathes of central and southern Somalia, Al Shabaab's overnight withdrawal was in part due to string of military offensives this year by AMISOM and the forces of the UN-backed Transitional Federal Government (TFG) which has seen them take strategic and tactical positions and areas of the capital that is now almost all under TFG and AMISOM contro (AP Photo/ AU-UN IST/ STUART PRICE.)
