"The Atmosphere in the Port of Kismayo" (الأجواء في ميناء كسمايو ).

The al-Kataib Media Foundation has released a new  video entitled "The Atmosphere in the Port of Kismayo" (الأجواء في ميناء كسمايو ). 

This video runs for a total length of 7 minutes 49 seconds and features interviews with people working in the port area of the city of Kismayo. 

Given the high production value of videos previously released by the al-Kataib Media Foundation, this somewhat less polished production would appear to have been put together rather quickly - perhaps as part of an attempt by al-Shabaab to portray a 'business as usual' situation in Kismayo despite the advance of the combined forces of the Tranisational Federal Government, AMISOM and Ras Kamboni Movement militia on the city.

It is possible that in the next few weeks we will continue to see the release of shorter videos by al-Shabaab focusing on the city of Kismayo and its efforts to hold onto this economically important city.
