Puntland foils truck bomb attack in Mudug region

An official says Puntland state security forces have seized a truck packed with explosives in Mudug region of central Somalia on Friday.

The official who declined to be named, told local media that security officers have managed to capture the explosives-laden truck in Beyra village near Galkayo town following a tip-off.

He added the would-be truck bomb attack was orchestrated in central Somalia, pointing the finger of the blame on Al Shabaab, the Al Qaeda-linked militant group based in Somalia.

The major towns in Puntland state have witnessed numerous car bomb attacks and targeted killings against senior officails by Al-Shabaab and pro-ISIL militants in the past few months.
