Somalia: 2 killed in violent attack on passenger bus

JOWHAR, Somalia June 23 (Garowe Online) - At least two people were killed Tuesday in southern Somalia after unidentified gunmen attacked a passenger bus, Radio Garowe reports.

Four others were wounded when the passenger bus full of travelers was attacked in the outskirts of Jowhar, capital of Middle Shabelle region.

The two dead victims included a mother who was traveling with her two children, according to local sources. The wounded victims were rushed to INTERSOS hospital in Jowhar, the sources added.

The passenger bus had left the capital Mogadishu and was heading 750km north, to the city of Galkayo in Puntland region.

The attackers reportedly fled and the violent incident took place inside territory controlled by Al Shabaab guerrillas. Al Shabaab commanders in Jowhar have not spoken publicly about the incident.

Separately, at least 8 people were killed in violent clashes among clan militias in Middle Shabelle region over the last 48 hours, elders said.

Community leaders are attempting to stop the violence among the warring clans. The fighting is reportedly linked to revenge killings, sources said.
