Six Killed, 15 Injured in Somalia Bombings

Officials in Baidoa, about 250km west of Mogadishu say that the blast apparently came from a remote-controlled landmine planted at a government tax collection point in the southern part of the town. This as a regional lawmaker has been abducted and killed by al-Shabab militants near the town of Bal'ad, 30 kilometers north of Mogadishu.
