The witness said an AMISOM armored personnel carrier was damaged when it was targeted a remote-controlled land mine blast on Mogadishu’s industrial road.
“AMISOM military convoy was targeted in IED explosion on the industrial street in Mogadishu, one vehicle has been destroyed in the attack,” said the eyewitness.
The witness spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing his own safety and a reprisal.
There was no immediate reports of the exact number of casualty on AMISOM soldiers as a result of the roadside bomb attack in Mogadishu on Friday.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but Al shabaab, a militant group that has links with Al Qaeda had conducted similar attacks on AU and Somali forces in the past.
