At least two civilians were killed, and several others wounded in a remote-controlled landmine blast near Jowhar town, the regional capital of Middle Shabelle province.

Somali security forces cordoned off the scene following the bomb explosion and launched a manhunt in the area, but no arrest has been reported so far.
