At least 13 people were killed and dozens injured in twin suicide attacks by militant group al-Shabaab in Somalia Sunday, police said.
The attacks, in Galkayo, capital of the north-central Mudug region, also caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to property such as office furniture, Somali national news agency Sonna reported.
“First a car bomb attack, then a suicide bomber blew himself up at a local government station near a market,” Sonna reported.
The blasts were followed by an exchange of gunfire between other attackers and security officers in front of a municipal building.
The section of the city where the attacks took place is controlled by Puntland regional state, a self-declared autonomous region.
The militant group al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attacks.Güncelleme Tarihi: 21 Ağustos 2016, 14:19
