TEHRAN, Oct. 31 (MNA) – A landmine was exploded as a vehicle belonging to members of al-Shabaab terrorist group drove over an improvised explosive device (IED) at ‘Qeycad’ district in outskirt of ‘Mudug’ city in Somalia.

Following the landmine explosion, 10 members of al-Shabaab terrorist group were killed and several others were injured in the blast, Anadolu news agency reported.

The Turkish news agency cited the Somali National Television as reporting that the attack occurred near Qeycad village in Mudug region, north-central Somalia.

The al-Shabaab, affiliated with al-Qaeda, are known to use IEDs to target civilians and security teams plying busy routes.
