In a press release on Monday morning, the Somaliland Ministry of Internal Affairs stated that the gunmen were organized by the "anti-peace traditional elders," but no one was named.
The statement said that authorities had forewarned the locals about dangerous elements in Las Anod, including terrorists.
The traditional elders meeting in town did not comment on the Somaliland government's latest accusation.
