Militants attack Somalia prison; 3 guards killed
Mogadishu: A government official says that about 20 armed Islamic extremists attacked a prison in northern Somalia in an attempt to free prisoners.
An official in the semi-autonomous region of Puntland said today that prison guards repelled the attack last night in which two guards were wounded.
The official said al-Shabab militants were suspected of carrying out the attack in Bossaso. The official insisted on anonymity because he`s not an official spokesman.
A resident, Mohamed Abdulqadir, said he heard an hour-long gun battle. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
