AU convoy hits landmine in Mogadishu


MOGADISHU (RBB) – Africa Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia (AMISOM) convoy hit a landmine on Wednesday morning in Somalia’s capital.

Residents told journalists that the convoy travelling in Suka-Holaha area in Huriwaa hit the landmine which is suspected to have been planted on the middle of the road.

“The AMISOM convoy hit a huge landmine near SOS Hospital and there was a heavy blast,” said a local resident.

According to the locals, AMISOM forces opened fire and started operations in the area.

The casualties of the blast and the gunfire are yet unknown.

Neither Somali government nor officials of AMISOM have commented on the incident.


  1. A fascinating discussion will be worth comment.
    I believe that you should write much more on this subject material,
    it may possibly not be considered a taboo matter but generally people don’t
    speak about such issues. To another! Cheers!!
