Al shabaab claims killing 9 soldiers in car bomb attack
Al shabaab has claimed full responsibility for the a deadly suicide car bomb explosion targeted a security checkpoint near Somali capital, Mogadishu on Saturday morning, killing at least 9 people.
According to a pro-al shabaab website, at least nine people, including a bomber have lost their lives in the massive attack at Siinka Dheer , which lies about 18KM north-west of Somali capital, Mogadishu.
Somali officials have vehemently rejected the Al shabaab claims of the high number casualties, saying a soldier serving with Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) lost his life in the attack.
The independent sources confirmed at least two people, including a bomber who carried out the attack died in the incident, which has rocked a main security checkpoint manned by Somali special forces.
