Somali youths pull donkey-drawn water carts past sacks of charcoal as a Kenyan Contingent convoy serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) makes its way through the city of Kismayu in this October 2, 2012 handout photograph released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team. According to the UN, Shabaab had for years used southern Somalia’s charcoal industry to generate funds. Kenyan troops fighting under the African Union flag entered al Shabaab’s former stronghold of Kismayu for the first time on Tuesday after launching an offensive against the port on Friday, forcing the rebels to flee.
