Wednesday October 6, 2021

JOWHAR (HOL) - Two MPs from HirShabelle state survived a grenade attack Tuesday night in Jowhar barely a month after a similar incident in the same city.

The two regional MPs identified as Abdirahman Idow and Mohamed Dheere were injured and rushed to Jowhar general Hospital.

Sources said assailants hurled a hand grenade at the residence of a local administrator where the two MPs were in.

The incident comes barely a month after three MPs from HirShabelle were also targeted in a hand grenade in Jowhar.

The militant group Al-Shabaab has since claimed responsibility for the Tuesday night attack.
