The Islamic clerics of Ahlu Sunna Waljama'a have said on Tuesday that they took over the control of Elder village in Galgudud region in central Somalia.
The clerics said that they captured Elder village in central Somalia where there had been forces loyal to Harakat Al-shabab Mujahideen earlier.
Officials of the Islamic clerics of Ahlu Sunna Waljam'a told reporters that they completely took over the control of Elder as the other forces left there adding that there were some areas which both forces exchanged sporadic clashes.
Reports from the region say that there was no fighting happened in the Village as the people in the village say that the capture of Ahlu Sunna Waljama'a forces came as Harakat Al-shabab Mujahideen fighters left there.
There is no comment about the take over from the Islamic administration of Harakat Al-shabab Mujahideen who were manning there earlier.
Reports also indicate that the sound of sporadic gunfire could be heard in the far areas of the village near where the new forces of Ahlu Sunna Waljam'a reached today.
The claim of Ahlu Sunna Waljam'a for capturing Elder village comes as there had been calm situations in Galgudud region in over the past month.
