A landmine exploded at a local Qur'anic school in Heraale town in Somalia's Galgadud region, killing two children and injuring three, Somalia's RBC Radio reported on Sunday (March 24th).

"The incident happened late yesterday evening and caused a lot of problems to the young children," said Heraale Commissioner Bashir Dahir Yussuf. "Incidences like these have recurred several times in the Heraale area because explosives are everywhere in the region, causing deaths of residents each time and explosive goes off."

Yussuf called on the Somali government and its non-governmental partners to clear the region of mines left over from the 1977-1978 war between Somalia and Ethiopia.
