Somalia police say auto bomb blast kills 5

Somalia police say auto bomb blast kills 5

The al-Qaida-linked terror group claimed victory and said the attack was a revenge for the latest civilians killed in airstrike by Somali and US forces.

To this end, the militants have repeatedly attacked both civilian and military targets in shooting and suicide bombing attacks.

A Somali military officer put the number of dead at 15; Shabaab said 21 were killed. Al-Shabab claimed 21 had been killed.

Reports said another suicide bomber drove his explosives-laden vehicle inside the outpost and went off as heavy exchange of gunfire between the militants and Somali government soldiers continued for minutes.

"The attacked soldiers were Somali military and the special forces trained by the United States called Danab".

People were killed when a vehicle bomb exploded near a bus stop, police said.

People gather at the scene of a auto bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia, Sept. 28, 2017.

In August after the area fell to the allied forces, at least ten people, including three young boys said to be local farmers were killed in a joint Somali-US raid on suspected farm outside Bariire. However al-Shabab often carries out such attacks.

In the past insurgent group al-Shabaab has claimed attacks in Somalia.

The militant group aims to oust the western-backed government in Mogadishu and drive out African Union peacekeeping troops.
