Barely hours after United State and African forces airstrike killed an Al-Shabaab leader, a suicide bomb attacked a central prison in Mogadishu, the Somali capital, killed no fewer than two and several others injured.
The country’s Police, while confirming the attack on Friday, narrated that the suicide bomber blew himself up at the entrance of the central prison in Mogadishu.
Initial reports indicate there were more casualties but it’s not yet clear how many people could have been injured when the bomber blew himself up at the prison’s entrance.
Chairperson of Somali Military Court, Hassan Ali Nor, who also confirmed the attack to newsmen, lamented that the attack happened while he and other officials were about to enter a mosque inside the building of the central prison.
“We are safe now, the attack happened outside a mosque inside the building of the central prison where we often pray on Fridays. Two people, including the suicide bomber died and some others were injured,” Nor said.
Hours after attack, none of the militant groups in Somalia has claimed responsibility for the latest attack in Mogadishu.
