Deadly explosion kills 3 soldiers near Mogadishu
MOGADISHU, Somalia – At least three government soldiers have been killed and two others wounded in bomb explosion in Somali capital Mogadishu.
The explosion ripped through a vehicle carrying military soldiers while travelling at Garasbaley area near the capital, leaving 3 soldiers dead, a witness said.
He says two others injured in the explosion.
The victims were taken into hospital in Mogadishu.
The explosion claimed by Al Shabaab.
