Somali army kills 12 extremists of the Al-Shabab group

Mogadishu, Jun 13 (Prensa Latina) The Somali government troops killed 12 extremists of the radical group Al-Shabab in a military operation carried out in the central region of Hiiraan, military sources reported.

According to an army statement, quoted by the Sonna News Agency, during the action, which took place near the village of Qabdho, in the district of Mataban, logistic bases of the extremist group, from where they used to extort money from the population, were also destroyed.

General Odowa Yusuf Roge, in charge of military forces in Hiiraan, confirmed that troops loyal to the central government also controlled areas of the zone in which they operated.

These developments come after unidentified gunmen carried out two bomb attacks in Mogadishu last Friday, killing two people and injuring five.

Within Somali territory, the Al-Shabab group carries out frequent attacks against military and civilian targets, especially in the center and south, where it controls extensive areas.

This African country, plagued by violence, has not had an effective central government since the overthrow of then President Mohamed Siad Barre by allied militias in 1991.
