Bomb attack on U.N. vehicle in Somalia kills at least nine

Of those killed in this latest bomb attack, police say at least four worked for the U.N. children’s fund UNICEF.

Officials say the target was a U.N. vehicle in Somalia’s semi-autonomous Puntland region.

Somalia militant group al Shabaab is claiming responsibility.

The al Qaeda-linked group is trying to impose strict Islamic law on the country and overthrow the Western-backed government.

Just last week they attacked a government building in the capital Mogadishu, killing at least 10.

Attacks by the group have intensified this year.

The UN says it is “shocked and appalled by the loss of life” in this latest attack.
