A suicide attack on a Somali military base in Biyo Adde area of the Middle Shabelle region on Friday morning wounded at least four soldiers, the army chief said.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of the base.
The statement from SNA command said that four Somali National Army soldiers were wounded in the blast.
“There were no reports of casualties among the troops, but four security guards were injured,” the statement said.
Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the blast, and said it wounded government officials and soldiers.
The suicide attack comes as government and AMISOM forces have been conducting operations in the Middle Shabelle region in recent days.
