At least 14 Somali soldiers were killed and more than 20 others wounded Saturday in suicide attack by al-Shabaab rebels in southern Somalia, officials and witnesses said.

The attack occurred inside a former university building on the outskirts of Kismayo, where African Union peacekeepers from Kenya and Somali soldiers are stationed, officials said.

“A minibus loaded with explosives was detonated inside the training part of the military camp. Fourteen soldiers were confirmed dead and more than 20 wounded,” Mohamed Abisalad, a Somali military official in Kismayo, told AFP.

“The incident is still being investigated to establish how the suicide bomber managed to pass by several checkpoints outside the camp,” he added.
