Although the casualties are unknown, the locals are reported to be evacuating from the Buulboarde district.

The people have made their ways towards the two exits of the district and this morning in that region it was said that the telecommunication is still down.

This morning, the vibrant movement of business owners failed to open their shops as they were frantic to evacuate Buulobarde in fear of any more Al-Shabaab attacks.
