It's been about a week since Al Shabaab militants retreated from the Somali port city of Kismayo, and Kenyan soldiers on duty there are working to make sure a potentially explosive situation is kept under control.

The troops are locating improvised explosive devices (IEDs) planted by the militants.

Kismayo, the third largest city in Somalia, was until recently a strong hold of Al Shabaab, which is tied to the terrorist group Al Qaeda.
