Kenyan military soldiers

Kenyan fighter jets have bombarded a civilian refugee camp in southern Somalia, killing and wounding dozens of people, Press TV reports.

The airstrikes targeted the civilian refugee camp in Gedo region of Ceel Ade village on Friday afternoon, a Press TV correspondent reported on Saturday.

Mohamed Abdi Kalil, the head of Gedo region, confirmed the attacks and the casualties.

Kenya invaded Somalia and sent its troops to the neighboring country almost two months ago in order to wipe out the al-Shabab group.

An unnamed Kenyan military spokesman announced that he would investigate the incident.

Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991, when warlords overthrew former dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.

Strategically located in the Horn of Africa, Somalia remains one of the countries generating the highest number of refugees and internally displaced persons in the world.
