A remote-controlled land mine explosion struck a military convoy carrying Somali government forces in the outskirts of Jowhar town, 90Km north of the capital Mogadishu.

Confirming the incident, Balcad district commissioner Osman Mohamed Mohamud “Hadoole” said one of the vehicles in the convoy ran over the roadside bomb, and caused no casualties.

The soldiers arrested several people in connection with the IED attack that took place in a remote area located between Balcad and Jowhar towns in Middle Shabelle region.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but, Al shabaab often carried out such ambushes on Somali and AU forces in the region, and elsewhere in the horn of Africa nation.
