“We have foiled an attack against civilians. We managed to seize explosives that were intended to carry out a terror attack on the main Mogadishu-Afgoye corridor”, the agency said.
The operation comes days after at least three people were killed in a suicide bomb attack on African Union military convoy in the capital Mogadishu.
