Event

Unconfirmed reports indicate that a roadside bomb detonated at the passage of an African Union peacekeeping mission forces in Somalia (AMISOM) convoy near the town of Jalalaqsi (Hiiraan region) on Tuesday, September 17. Casualties have been reported, although the exact number remains unknown. Details are emerging. A heightened security presence is to be expected in the area over the coming hours.

Context

Al-Shabaab continues to exercise effective control over large zones in the south and center of Somalia and attacks from the group are frequent across the country, including in Mogadishu. The group often targets government officials and military infrastructure in a bid to topple the West- and UN-backed government and impose its own strict interpretation of Islam in Somalia.

Advice

Individuals in Somalia are advised to avoid the affected area, monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments. The security environment in Somalia remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
