According to the radio station Goobjoob, residents in the city of Hosingow declared that in the last hours they heard prolonged bursts of gunfire and explosions after the assault on the uniformed installation.

The source also reported that this is the latest in a series of attacks against various targets claimed by the extremist group, which is being fought by government forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amison), made up of some 2,000 troops.

According to the media, neither the Mogadishu authorities nor the Kenyan army gave any information so far about the shooting, which lasted for hours.

The armed forces of Nairobi, affiliated to the Amison, decided to confront the radical formation, after this organization carried out attacks against several targets and kidnapped tourists on the common border between Kenya and Somalia since 2007.
