Blast hits a café in Somalia's Baidoa town
(Sh.M.Network)-A vast kaboom was heard on Sunday in the heart of Baidoa town, the capital city of Bay province in southern Somalia, where has been a main stronghold for Al shabab before TFG and Ćthiopian troops retook control early this year, witnesses said.
Eyewitnesses told Shabelle Media that the blast happened at about 7:20 a.m. local time after gunnies attacked with a hand grenade on a coffee bar that frequented by Somali government soldiers and officials.No deaths and wounds reported so far.
"The kaboom was huge and could be heard in parts in the town early hours on Sunday morning... people at the café got terrified and shocked following the blast. I can't confirm you how many people were killed and injured in the incident," said a witness who spoke with Shabelle Media by phone from Baidoa town.
Baidoa, which sits just 250 kilometers south of Mogadishu, has seen several deadly attacks, including car booms and landmine blasts since Somali and Ćthiopian troops captured it from Al shabab gunnies this year.
