Mogadishu (HOL) - A local government official from Jowhar district, Dahir Mohamed Kaanti, succumbed to injuries sustained in a landmine explosion at the livestock market in Jowhar on Saturday.

Reports indicate that the explosion also injured several soldiers from the regional government forces. The incident occurred during a bustling time at the livestock market in Jowhar, where numerous animals were being brought in on Saturday.

Security forces conducted investigations at the scene but refrained from immediately commenting on the blast. Furthermore, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack at this time.

The landmine explosion occurred just a few days after President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud visited Jowhar. However, the president was unable to enter the city due to reportedly security concerns, and instead, he held a meeting with regional state leaders at the airport.
