At least 20 civilians have lost their lives and several others sustained injuries in a roadside bomb attack in Somalia.

The bomb went off in Lafole, located around 20 kilometers (14.5 miles) west of the capital, Mogadishu, on Thursday when a minibus full of civilian passengers was passing by.

According to Nur Ahmed, a local who was driving along the same road at the time of the incident, the packed minibus was being escorted by a military vehicle carrying government troops, which escaped the blast undamaged.
