No less than four players were killed while several others were injured following a terrorist attack on Somali leading team, JCCI FC.
The tragic incident occurred as the team were on their way to preseason camp activities in Jubaland when the attackers struck.
It was established that the team’s bus was bombed in the southern town of Kismayo, as police suggested explosives had been placed on the bus.
Officer Mohamed Sadiq who witnessed the incident suggested a possible suicide bombing in his comments.
