A concealed bomb which was planted in a tea shop in Qalimow town in Middle Shabelle region by suspected al-Shabaab terrorists who have been wreaking havoc in the area without abandon has caused severe damage to property and loss of innocent lives.
According to the Somali National TV News, the vicious mid-morning attack in the tea shop located at the busy town left six people dead and 10 others surviving grievous injuries due to the unforeseen blast.
Local security officials have already responded to the attack and hostages rescued as the pursuit for the suspected al-Shabaab masterminds is launched.
In the recent past, the unforgiving al-Shabaab militants are frequently attacked social places such as hotels, cafes and restaurants, attacks that have often claimed dozens of lives.
The militant group seems to have resorted to bomb attacks instead of the traditional direct confrontations through firepower which often left them with casualties.
