Islamist militant al-Shabab fighters have launched an attack on a Kenyan military base in southern Somalia, killing more than 50 soldiers.

The al-Qaeda-linked group says it has also seized military vehicles and weapons.

However, a Kenyan military spokesman said the dawn attack was repelled, the base was not overrun and scores of insurgents were killed in the fighting.

A year ago al-Shabab carried out a similar attack on a Kenyan base in the town el-Ade.
