The incident happened at approximately 4pm today. Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, AMISOM Force spokesperson said;

“In the midst of a famine seizing Somalia the extremists are choosing to focus on killing, not saving life.

“The extremists are using desperate measures to achieve their ends through their willingness to use brutal violence during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Make no mistake, we will not allow this sort of terrorism to succeed.

“AMISOM Forces are in the middle of conducting security operations in the capital to increase the areas of the capital under government control and safeguard Somalis.”

Each year, during the month of Ramadan, the extremists have attacked civilians and AMISOM troops using suicide bombers.
