At least 15 people have been killed, including a controversial religious scholar, and 10 others wounded after a car bomb exploded followed by heavy gunfire in central Somalia, police and officials said.
Attackers of the armed group al-Shabab stormed into the religious centre of Sheikh Abdiweli Ali Elmi Yare in the north-central city of Galkayo in Mudug region, attacking the Sufi leader and his followers.
“The attackers used a vehicle loaded with explosives to make their way into the compound before shooting indiscriminately at people inside,” Abdirahman Mohamed, a security officer, told AFP news agency.
