A civilian was killed and another one seriously injured after a vehicle carrying them was hit by an IED explosion near Hirshabelle’s Bal’ad town on Monday morning.
Eyewitnesses told Radio Dalsan that a landmine planted on a road hit a Dyna truck carrying a driver and his turnboy.
The driver was identified as Bashir.
Bishar was reported to have died on the spot while the turnboy who suffered serious injuries was rushed to a hospital.
