Air strikes have killed at least three children in Somalia’s southern region.
MPs in the country say the children died when their school bus was in town of Sakow- al-Shabab’s major stronghold.
The attack which took place early hours of Wednesday reportedly targeted a boarding school along with the main hospital of the town which is said to have been destroyed.
The school is reportedly run by the Al-Shabab group which controls the area.
12 al-Shabab militants were also reportedly killed and several others injured after the airstrike.
Adam Isak Ali, deputy minister of information of Somalia, told state-owned Somali News Agency that the airstrike was carried out overnight by international partners.
