Bomb Exposure Rocks Stadium During Live Match





A bomb killed at least five spectators at a football match in southern Somalia, police and a lawmaker said today, the first time an explosion has targeted a stadium.

The blast went off in the port town of Barawe, in the Lower Shabelle region, when residents were watching a football match on Thursday afternoon.

"The bomb killed five people and injured a dozen others in the football field. All the casualties were from the onlookers," Mahad Dhoore, a lawmaker said.

Police officer Mohamed Aden said the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab group was suspected of being behind the attack and put the number of dead at four and wounded at 12.
