    ADVANCED FOR USE WEDNESDAY OCT 17 AND THEREAFTER FILE - In this Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012 file photo released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team, Kenyan soldiers serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) sit on a flat-bed truck as a convoy makes its way between the port and the airport in Kismayo, southern Somalia. Backed by a sweeping multinational effort that includes $338 million in U.S. equipment, wages and training, the force of Ugandans, Burundians, Kenyans and Somalis that was deployed to take on the country's Islamic radicals can claim a degree of success that had initially seemed highly unlikely.

    In this photo taken Thursday, Oct 11, 2012, Somali government soldier carries a weapon and ammunition after capturing Belidogle airport, Somalia from Al-shabab fighters. Somali government troops worked with African Union troops to secure the airport area. African union soldiers are preparing to move in convoy with supply vehicles from Balidogle airport to Mogadishu, a journey of about 100 Km (60 miles). The rough roads snake through rough terrain in this wide and dangerous land that the African Union peacekeepers have to move through every day to reach the newly seized bases in regions outside the capital. Despite the armored vehicles many troops are injured by the bush savvy militants. (AP Photo/Farah Abdi Warsameh)
