The Islamist terrorist militia Al-Shabaab repeatedly attacks the civilian population. Twelve people are killed in an attack in Somalia. The motives of the attackers are completely unclear.
At least four Kenyans are among the dead. Gedo is among regions in southern Somalia hit by the worst drought in 40 years. Al-Shabaab also set fire to excavators in the attack in the village of Gariley, Bulle said. "We do not know the motive behind this shocking terrorist attack," he added.
The Islamist terrorists control large parts of the central Somalia region and the south of the country. The terrorist group frequently carries out attacks on civilians and regularly destroys houses and wells. The government in the country on the Horn of Africa has been conducting a military offensive against Al-Shabaab for several months. Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world.
