Somalia government soldiers on Friday night killed an al shabaab commander after conducting a search in Luuqa Jelo location in the outskirts of Beledweyne town in Hiraan.

The Deputy social affairs commissioner of Hiraan confirmed the killing of the al shabaab leader and added that they also arrested other militants who were staying in the area.
