Somali security forces managed to foil a major attack that targeted security manning a checkpoint in Mogadishu.
A loud explosion from a hand grenade was heard on Monday evening a few metres from a government security checkpoint at Ali Bolay area in Mogadishu’s Waberi district by assailants believed to be Al-Shabaab operatives.
Security cordoned off the scene and launched a manhunt for the suspects who immediately fled after their mission failed to hit the target.
No casualties were reported from the blast
