Kismayo — Witnesses say at least two bomb explosions have rocked at early hours on Monday morning in the seaside strategic Somalia's southern city of Kismayo, the latest in series of attacks and explosions in the city since Somali and Kenyan forces moved in.
Unidentified attackers hurled hand grenades into at the regional administration offices in the city, causing unconfirmed casualties. Kenyan troops from the African Union force and their Somali allies entered the former Islamist bastion early this month.
"It was a huge explosion at the administration office, where Somali military commanders are locating," said resident who asked anonymity, although witnesses and government officials reported no casualties.
The Somali troops and Ras Kamboni militia commanded by former Islamist Ahmed Madobe, who switched from supporting the Shebab to fight alongside the AU, conducted operations over the blasts.
Kismayo, 500 Km south of Mogadishu alongside Indian ocean Coast has been under Al shabab control for three years, but now fell to Somali and AMISOM forces.
