KISMAYO (Sh.M.Network)— At least two people were killed and five others injured in a huge roadside bomb explosion inn Somalia’s southern port city of Kismayo, the latest in series of attacks against Somali and Kenyan forces, reports said.
Tuesday’s attack took place at Alanley village, targeting Somali government forces as they were carrying out massive operations aimed to secure the city, after the Al Qaeda-linked Al shabab insurgents vacated.
“The explosion was a remote controlled land-mine that hit on a vehicle carrying soldiers from Somali government and their Raskomboni militia fighters. At least two soldiers dead following the blast,” a resident who asked not to be named, told Shabelle Media Network by phone.
No group has yet claimed the responsibility for the attack.
In the aftermath of the attack, the situation of the city has returned to normal and public movement and transportations are up and running.
