The Somali government has sacked the head of the country’s army.

Brig Gen Odowaa Yusuf Rageh has been replaced by Ibrahim Sheikh Muhyadin Addow.

It comes as the government prepares a new offensive against Islamist militant group al-Shabab.

Earlier this month they attacked a beachside hotel in the capital, Mogadishu, killing nine civilians.

And in southern Somalia more than 20 children were killed by mortar shells which exploded while they were playing. Al-Shabab was blamed for their deaths.
