Mortar fire rains down on Capital on the eve of polls

Several mortar rounds hit several locations in Somali capital on Tuesday evening, as the city is set to host a presidential election, just 12 hours from now.

Somali security officials and witnesses said the mortar shells were fired at the polling station around the airport in Mogadishu, and residential areas. No casualties were reported yet.

The mortar fire rained down on the capital, targeting the election venue at former Somali air force base known as Afisyone in the airport vicinity, but officials say no shell has hit the area.
