At least five CCTV cameras along Mogadishu’s Maka al Mukarama street were destroyed Thursday morning under mysterious circumstances.
Local residents told the media there were heavy explosions at about 5am local time and in its wake cameras were destroyed.
The circumstances under which the CCTV cameras were destroyed remained unclear but multiple sources said they may have been damaged using improvised explosive devices.
No group has claimed responsibility for the destruction of the cameras. The attack comes barely six weeks after four other security cameras located along Maka al Mukarama street were bombed.
Late last year, Somali government installed the cameras in a move to beef up security in the city.
