Security procedures for the UN Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) will be revised after a deadly attack by Al-Shabaab gunmen, according to its Spokesperson.

The militants infiltrated the Halane base camp in Mogadishu on Thursday killing three African Union soldiers and two civilian contractors.

UNSOM also uses the base as its headquarters.

UNSOM Spokesperson Aleem Siddique said the terrorists infiltrated the camp in an attempt to gain access to critical infrastructure.

On the line from Mogadishu, he began by giving Jocelyne Sambira an overview of what happened.
