A Somali mother and her child were killed and four others injured when a Kenyan warplane bombed two towns in southern Somalia, the woman’s husband said on Monday.

The bombing by the Kenyan plane occurred last Thursday night in two towns in the Gedo area in Somalia’s semi-autonomous state of Jubbaland.

The Somali government on Friday condemned what it called “indiscriminate air strikes” in El Ade and Hisa-u-Gur towns carried out by Kenyan forces.

A contingent of the Kenyan military is part of the African Union-mandated peacekeeping force AMISOM stationed in Somalia to help defend the government from the al Qaeda-linked insurgent group al Shabaab.
