Mogadishu (SD) – The Somali militant group Al-Shabab in a statement claimed it had launched the mortar attack this morning on Mogadishu’s Halane headquarters.
Halane is the AMISOM peacekeeping force base in Somalia, especially in Mogadishu, and is also home to foreign diplomats and international agencies.
Media affiliated with Al-Shabaab reported that blasts were heard in Halane Headquarters this morning after Al-Shabaab carried out a mortar attack, but didn’t report any casualties.
Al-Shabab media also reported that black smoke was seen rising from the base after at least seven shells hit the compound just outside Mogadishu’s Aden Adde airport.
However, AMISOM has not yet commented on the alleged attack on Halane and whether there were casualties.
