One dead as Al shabaab attacks Hudur with mortars
At least 1 person was confirmed killed, and several injured after Al shabaab has fired several mortar rounds at Hudur city, south-west of Somalia on Sunday.
Al Shabaab militants said they carried out a mortar attack on Somali & AMISOM military bases in Hudur city, the provincial capital of Bakool region.
However, there were no immediate reports of casualties on the allied troops who subsequently launched an operation, in response to the Al shabab shelling.
Government officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
Al shabaab has intensified its daring attacks on Somali and AU troops in south and central Somalia, in a bid to disrupt the country’s upcoming election in Nov30.
