A powerful roadside bomb has ripped through a military vehicle in the outskirts of Mogadishu, the Somali capital on Saturday morning, witnesses said.
An eyewitness confirmed that a remote-controlled landmine struck the vehicle carrying Somali soldiers from Lower Shabelle region and heading to Mogadishu.
He said the blast has inflicted casualties on the soldiers, but, the number of the fatalities has not yet been established so far. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The attack was the latest in series of landmine explosions targeting Somali and AMISOM troops on the main highway linking Mogadishu to Afgoye district in the past few weeks.
