Bomb blast wounds at least 4 in southern Somalia

BAIDOA, Somalia – At least four people were reported to have been wounded, some in critical condition following an IED explosion in southern Somalia on Monday.

Eyewitnesses say the remote-controlled landmine ripped through a house in Baidoa city, the current seat of Southwest state, approximately 250 kilometers northwest of Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

The incident took place at around a bustling market in Bunbashar village with no reports of fatalities on both the civilians and the security personnel.

A man identified as Ali Dheere is said to be the prime target of the attack and no further information on the bombing that comes amidst tightened security in the city following series of mortar shelling.  

There was no claim of responsibility for the blast but bore all the hallmarks of the Al-Shabaab attacks in Somalia, where the group is battling against the Federal Government for 13 years.
