Extremists attack high security prison in Somali capitol

A Somali police officer says heavily armed suspected Islamic militants have attacked a high security prison in the Somali capital.

 

Capt. Mohamed Hussein said that armed men on Sunday morning invaded the Godka Jilacow prison, which also serves as a key interrogation center for Somalia's intelligence agency.

 

Mohamed Hassan, a resident who lives near the prison in the neighborhood of the presidential palace, said he heard gunfire and explosions as soldiers and militants fought for the control of the notorious jail.

 

No group has immediately claimed the responsibility for the attack which shattered a period of calm in Mogadishu, which is stabilizing after nearly 20 years of chaotic violence.
