Landmine kills one, wounds 3 in Somali capital

MOGADISHU, Somalia - One person was killed and three others reportedly wounded in a landmine blast in the Somali capital, Mogadishu on Saturday morning, the latest in a string of terrorist IED attacks in the country amid heightened political and electoral tension. 

A witness confirmed to KON that a remote-controlled roadside blast struck a vehicle carrying traffic police in the vicinity of the former Haile Barise factory in the city's Huriwa district. 

There are reports of casualties including the death of the driver and the wounded have been rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. 

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but police pointed the finger of the blame at Al-Shabaab which is fighting to oust the West-backed government of the horn of Africa nation and threaten the country's fragile peace and stability.
