Somalia: Blast kills five policemen and injures many others

Mogadishu, October 9, 2019 (Hornnews24) –  At least five specially-trained policemen have been killed and more than 10 others were wounded when a huge blast targeted on Wednesday a police convoy at the suburb of the Somali capital Mogadishu.

According to local sources, a remote controlled Landmine struck the police convoy at the Sinkadher area outside Mogadishu annihilating at least one armored vehicle and all of its occupants. .  Witnesses have said that the bodies of the policemen were severed by the explosion beyond recognition.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, but Al-Qaida-linked Alshabaab has carried similar attacks against the Somali soldiers and the foreign troops.

Al Shabaab, which control large parts of south and central Somalia, fights for driving out the foreign troops and unseating the western-backed somali government to impose the Islamic Sharia law on country.
