      Scene of the attack where the governor and his bodyguards were killed

      Al-Shabaab jihadist group have claimed victory after a Somali governor and three bodyguards were killed in a suicide attack in the regional capital of Galkayo on Sunday.

      According to reports, the attacker rammed a scooter taxi into the car carrying the governor of the north-central Mudug province, Ahmed Muse Nur, and his security detail, before detonating an explosive device.

      Police captain Mohamed Osman, who confirmed the news, told Reuters that:

      “A suicide car bomb hit the governor’s car. Governor Ahmed Muse Nur and three of his bodyguards died,”

      Mohamed Osman confirmed the toll of four and added:

      “There are other casualties but the details are still being investigated.”

      In late March, the governor of Puntland, a neighbouring semi-autonomous province, was killed in similar circumstances.

      Al-Shabaab, an Islamist militant group waging a deadly insurgency in Somalia, also claimed responsibility for that attack.

      On Sunday, it posted a statement on a pro-Shabaab website that said:

      “The governor of the apostate administration in the Mudug region was killed in a martyrdom operation in Galkayo today.”

      Galkayo has been rocked by fighting between forces from both regions; and also by rival clans in the northern and southern parts of the town.
