Roadside blast kills 4 Soldiers in Somalia's port city of Kismayo
(Sh.M.Network)-- At least four soldiers died and more than that number injured in a roadside kaboom that rocked on Monday afternoon in Somalia's southern port city of Kismayo, 500 Km south of Mogadishu, reports said.

Reports said the blast occurred near the airport targeting a military convoy carrying Kenyan soldiers serving under the African Union

mission in Somalia (AMISOM), killing 4 soldiers following the attack.

Kenyan army condoned off the site of the kaboom near the airport of Kismayo and began carrying out crackdown to find out the perpetrators. No arrests reported.

It was unavailable to reach Kenyan army officials for comments on the attack and corpse count.

No group has said yet it carried out the kaboom, but al shabab beturbanned goons have in the past claimed more blasts in the city since the allied forces moved in last month.
