BURAO (Somalilandsun) – A boy is receiving medical attention at Burao General Hospital following serious injurious to various parts of his body.

Master Sharmarke Farah Abi sustained the life threatening injuries after he stepped on a landmine at October estate in Burao town.

Reports indicate that the boy who was soccer practicing with colleagues stepped on the unexploded ordnance as he pursued the ball that had gone out of the field.

While hoping Master Abi regains his health expeditiously the big question remaining is how a landmine could still exist in a crowded estate in the country’s second capital.

With various mine clearance agencies both public and international and millions of dollars spend over the years it beats all how this could happen not to mention the proximity to the Toghdeer regional governor’s office.
