Baku, September 15, AZERTAC

At least eight government officials were killed in Somalia in attacks claimed by al-Shabaab militants, according to Bloomberg.

The deputy governor of Somalia’s Middle Shabelle region was among five people killed when a roadside bomb hit the vehicle they were traveling in, Mohamed Abdi Ware, president of Hirshabelle state, said Saturday. Ware’s adviser was also killed in the same attack.

In a separate raid, three district-administration officers were forced out of their homes in Beled Hawo town near Somalia’s border with Kenya, shot and killed, according to the region’s authorities.
