Somaliland - Two guards killed by gunmen in a voter distribution centre in Laasanod

(Medeshi)- Gunmen attacked today the voter card distribution centre in Laasanod, the capital of Sool region of Somaliland. Two guards are reportedly killed.

The soldiers that were killed have been guarding the voter card distribution centre when the  assailants stormed the centre and killed them.

The Presidential elections in Somaliland are slated for Nov 13 2017 and there are close to 2000 polling stations scheduled to receive the voters on election day.
Security is a key to hold free and fair elections and any terrorist interruptions in the polling stations could reduce the number of people voting for democracy.
