Four militants killed in raid on Somalia

By on June 21, 2015

Four Islamist gunmen were killed after detonating a car bomb and shooting their way into a national intelligence agency training site, the internal security ministry said, adding that the government did not suffer any casualties during the attack.

A suicide car bomber and gunmen attacked a training centre for the national intelligence agency on Sunday morning.
A spokesman for al Shabaab, which wants to topple a Western-backed government in Mogadishu, said the group’s fighters had killed more than 10 intelligence officials.

Government officials said that soldiers “foiled the attack” and at least three militants died.

Interior ministry spokesman Mohamed Yusuf said security forces had successfully repulsed the attackers.
The interior ministry displayed the insurgents’ bullet-ridden bodies to the media following the assault, which started just after dawn and lasted for about one hour.

In April, al-Shabab militants launched an assault across the border in Kenya on a university in the north-eastern town of Garissa.
On Saturday attacked a police post near the capital, killing eight officers.
