As many as 15 Al-Shabaab militants were killed Tuesday after a vehicle packed with explosive devices went off inside a house in the town of Bulo Burte in Somalia.

At least 20 others were wounded, according to local reports.

“The militants were most likely packing the vehicle with explosive devices or in the house when the deadly incident occurred,” said a resident who requested not to be identified.

Other residents said that foreign jihadists were among those killed or injured, Africa Review reported.
