Somali Minister Killed In Bomb Attack

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.
