UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — A blast in Barawe, Somalia killed at least 5 people and injured about 10 inside a football stadium.
The people who died are reported to be teenagers playing a game and the bomb appeared to be remotely controlled from another location.
Police say they believe the group al-Shabab is responsible for the attack.
The country’s president, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed condemned the attack and said the group is Somalia’s “only enemy.”
Al-Shabab is an Islamist militant group that opposes the Somali government, which is backed by the United Nations.
They are allied with al-Qaida.
An explosion claimed by al-Shabab in Mogadishu, Somalia outside a hotel killed at least 14 people in March.
A bomb killed two Somali soldiers near the country’s Parliament the same month.
In October 2017, more than 300 people died after car explosions occurred in the country’s capital.
