At least two people were injured in a bomb attack targeting a Turkish education organization vehicle in Somalia’s capital on Thursday, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported, citing local police.

An improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a bulletproof vehicle carrying Turkish engineers from the Maarif Foundation near the busy KM-5 intersection known as Zoobe, said Jabril Ibrahim Ali, a police officer in Mogadishu.

The wounded have been rushed to the hospital and their condition is not life-threatening, hospital sources said.

Local media reports said a Turkish woman was injured in the attack but that the engineers were unharmed.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but Somali-based al-Qaeda affiliated group al-Shabaab claimed recent attacks in Mogadishu.

Last week, three people including two bodyguards were injured in an IED explosion that struck a Turkish engineers’ vehicle in the vicinity of Weydow, outside of Mogadishu.
