Mogadishu (HOL) - Al Shabaab fighters said they destroyed three fuel tankers en route to Baledogle Airfield, a US military facility used for staging drone strikes and training Somali security services on Sunday.
The fuel convoy was attacked while passing through the Hawo Abdi area between Mogadishu and Afgoye, about 80 kilometres south of Baledogle, according to the group's spokesman, Abdiaziz Abu Musab.
Abu Musab added that one tanker escaped the ambush and fled towards Mogadishu.
Somali government officials said no one was killed or seriously injured in the attack.
