Bomb blast kills 4 soldiers in Somalia

At least four Somali government soldiers were killed and several others wounded when a bomb blast targeted a military convoy near the town of Warmahan, lower Shabelle region, an official said on Sunday.

Warmahan is a small agricultural town located near Afgoye, 30 kilometers (18 miles) southwest of the capital Mogadishu.

Salad Hussein, a military official in lower Shabelle region, spoke to Anadolu Agency over the phone and confirmed the current death toll.

“Al-Shabaab terrorist group attacked military personnel traveling between Wanlawayn and Afgoye with a roadside blast.”

Reinforcements were sent to the scene and security forces conducted an operation against al-Shabaab in the area but no one was arrested so far, he added.

Somalia-based al-Qaeda affiliated group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack.
