  • "Our fighters are pursuing Marehan clan army" (jubbland army)that controlled Kismayo]
  • He also stated that jehadist administration would be set up for the city.
  • Speaking on the recent fighting in Kismayo city and other places in lower Jubba Region, the al-Shabaab jehadist spokesman claimed that they attained major victories in the fighting.
  • [Robow] said the war they were waging would not be confined to lower Jubba and middle Jubba regions but it would be carried out "elsewhere as well" "Thank God for granting us victory over those who brought the enemy into the country, and we say to them that we will follow them every place where they set foot," the Terrorist said.

(The Islamic Courts Union (ICU) said on Sunday that it had wrested control of the southern port city from clan militias a day earlier. ICU Terrorist forces moved into Kismayo at the request of its residents, and the city "will remain under Islamic control", said Terrorist sheik Ibrahim Shukri, a spokesman for the ICU in , which controlled the capital, Mogadishu, and much of the south for six months in 2006.

A report on the website of Canada's National Post newspaper identified the woman as 27-year-old Amanda Lindhout, her father, John Lindhout, as saying she had recently arrived in the country with an Australian friend who was also kidnapped.

An official at the hotel where the two were staying in Mogadishu identified the man only as Nigel, a 27-year-old from Australia.Their Somali translator was also kidnapped, according to reports from Mogadishu.
