Bomb Made by Suspected al-Shabab Member Explodes, Killing Family

A suspected al-Shabab militant died along with his two children when an improvised explosive device (IED) he was making exploded in his house near Mogadishu on Saturday night. His wife was also injured in the blast.

The incident occurred in Elasha Biyaha, 15km south of Mogadishu, according to the police spokesman who spoke to state-owned media. However, no arrests were made after security forces arrived at the scene.

“A militant who was crafting landmines in his residence triggered an explosion that resulted in the deaths of his two children and injuries to his wife,” stated Abdifatah, the spokesman.

The incident is not the first of its kind, as explosions have previously occurred in houses where mines and other explosives were being prepared, both in Mogadishu and in different regions.
