A regional minister and his son have been killed in a bomb attack in south-west Somalia.
The blast in Baidoa city targeted Hassan Ibrahim Lugbur – the south-west region’s justice minister – as he was leaving the mosque after Friday prayers.
Several other people including his security guards were injured. Earlier this week the mayor of the port city of Merka – in the same region of Somalia – was also killed.
The Islamist militant group, al-Shabab, said it carried out that attack.
