At least 7 people were reported to have been injured in bomb attack on coffee shop popular with government officials and ordinary people in Elwak town of south of Somalia’s Gedo region, Shabelle said, citing witnesses.

Elwak district commissioner, Ibrahim Kajiko, 4 of his security guards and 2 other civilians were separately injured in explosive materials hidden inside the tea shop exploded, a witness told Shabelle Media in Mogadishu.

The DC Ibrahim is said to be in critical condition after he seriously injured in the attack, according officials who asked to be unnamed because they were unauthorized to speak on the media.

No one claimed responsibility for the bomb attack on the coffee shop but Somalia’s Al Shabab militants took the credit for several attacks against Somalia, along with AU forces in Mogadishu.
