MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Al-Shabaab gunmen stormed a hospice housing pro-government militias in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu on Tuesday, officials confirmed.
Militants blasted their way into the high security area in Mogadishu’s Abdiasis district which is close to the residence of deputy parliament speaker and those of other government officials.
Al-Shabaab said it killed at least 70 people, including soldiers and Ma’wisley clan militias from Hiran region, who had been receiving medical treatment at the hospice.
Somali government and security officials have not yet commented on the casualties inflicted by the raid, which comes weeks after the rebel group attacked the office of the city’s mayor.
