Deadly explosion wounds 8 people in central Somalia

At least 8 people including soldiers have been wounded last night after grenade bomb explosion targeted government troops in central Somalia’s Baladweyne town, witnesses said.

The town is situated some 350Km north of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu.

In an interview with Shabelle Media, a witness said that unknown armed men hurled grenade bomb blast into area controlling by government troops.

The troops opened fire, in bid to respond to the bomb attack, he added.

The victims in the explosion have been taken into hospital for medical treatment.

Local officials were not available on the phone for comments on the explosion.

No group says it carried out the blast but Al Shabaab claimed similar attacks in the past months.
