A child among two killed in Somalia explosion

KISMAYO, Somalia - Jubaland security ministry has given details about last night's explosion in Kismayo, a port city located some 500 km south of the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

The ministry's spokesman Jama Ahmed Ali (Joofane) told VOA that the IED blast at a bust beachfront restaurant killed at least 2 people and injured 7 others, including three soldiers. 

He added that security forces were still conducting further investigations into the deadly explosion, which targeted a restaurant frequented by soldiers and regional officials. 

"As far as we know, two people were killed, one of them a child, and seven others were injured, three of them soldiers. The security agencies are investigating," Joofane said.

Last night's attack came hours after Ahmed Madobe, Jubaland state leader has returned to the town from Kenya, where he has gained strong support after capturing Kismayo in 2012.

The situation in the former Al-Shabaab bastion is calm on Tuesday morning, and the injured are currently being treated at the hospital. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. 

Kismayo, which serves as the interim capital of Jubaland, has been the scene of a series of insecurity incidents in recent months, including bombings and assassinations.

Ahmed Madobe was accused of committing atrocities against local people after targeting and killing business tycoons, traditional elders, and scholars in Kismayo for opposing his admin.
