Bomb-blasts rock City of Kismayo with unofficial reports of death and injuries. The reports are still sketchy, but there are reports of at least two dozens dead, including Ms. Hodan Naaleeyee and her husband Fariid, and multiple more wounded. Hodan was a Somali-Canadian TV and Radio Presenter from Toronto.
Reports add that the hotel attacked is still under gunfire, as we write, between security forces and gunmen inside the Cascasey Hotel in downtown Kismayo. Unconfirmed reports indicate that there might be other Bomb-blasts elsewhere in the City.
Speculations and rumours are flying wild already in Kismayo and beyond, treating these blasts as election-related violence in Jubaland.
