Suicide bomber kills 3 police officers in central Somalia


Last Updated on


Somali police say a suicide bomber has killed three police officers including a senior commander in the central city of Galkayo.

Col. Ahmed Hashi says the bomber apparently was targeting the commander of a special police force tasked with the security of the divided city.

Hashi says three other people were wounded in the blast.

The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group has claimed responsibility.

Galkayo city is split into two parts controlled by rival regional administrations, Puntland and Galmudug, and for years it has experienced deadly battles between the two sides.
