In this photo of Thursday, May 24, 2012, and released by the African Union-United Nations Support Team. Ugandan soldiers serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and Somali National Army (SNA) troops pass over open ground near the outskirts of the town of Afgoye, located west of the country's capital Mogadishu. A joint AMISOM and Somali National Army (SNA) advance called 'Operation Free Shabelle' faced no resistance on its 3rd day as forces advanced a further 6km closer to the town of Afgoye, home to approx. 400,000 internally displaced people. AMISOM and the SNA, having strategically planned the operation to avoid areas of civilian populations, now sit 2km outside the town having steadily captured territory in the past 3 days which was previously under the control of the al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab.
