PM Roble visits wounded soldiers in hospital

Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble and Galmudug state president Ahmed Abdi Kariye Qoorqoor have visited soldiers wounded in the Al-Shabaab attack in Wisil town of Mudug region.

The Prime Minister heard the doctors report on the injuries, wished them a speedy recovery, and thanked them for their bravery in repelling the Al-Shabaab enemy.

At least 30 people died on Sunday when Al-Shabaab launched an attack at a military base in Wisil town in Galmudug state.

The attack triggered a fight with the government troops and local militias.

Somali Deputy Information Minister Abdirahman Yusuf Al-Adala condemned the attack saying the government had taken immediate action to support the people of Wisil.

"The government, while encouraging the people of Wisil, has taken immediate steps to provide relief to those affected by the attack and bombings by al-Shabaab militants," Information Minister Al-Adala said.

Al-Shabaab militants have been fighting in Somalia for more than a decade to overthrow the central government.

The group which is linked to Al-Qaeda was driven out of the capital by AMISOM and Somali military but still carries out hit and run attacks in the country.
