AFGOI (Sh. M. Network)-Heavy explosion targeted to the Ethiopian troops
have killed at least three Ethiopian soldiers and injured more others in
Afgoi town 30 kilometers south of Mogadishu city on Saturday, witnesses

''The explosion was a remote controlled landmine that was targeted to
the Ethiopian troops who were passing around the livestock market and
they were going to their military base in Afgoi town in Lower Shabelle
region. Three Ethiopian soldiers have been killed in that blast and more
other Ethiopian troops have also been wounded,'' one resident said.
More Ethiopian troops have arrived the scene of the blast and halted the
transportation and movement of the people in Afgoi and the troops have
conducted search operations around the area where the accident of the
blast occurred this morning.
All business centers were closed and the people who were around that
area are reported to have fled from there after the Ethiopian troops
have come and surrounded there.
This heavy explosion targeted to the Ethiopians troops is part of more
other blasts that are targeted to foreign troops but the deadly blast
which occurred this morning in Afgoi comes by a time the Ethiopian
troops in the town began movements between Arbiska district and Afgoi in
the recent days.
