At least 32 people have died in Somalia after drinking water from a well that was believed to have been poisoned, officials said on Monday.
More than 10 other people were hospitalised after drinking the water in Masuubiye near the south-western city of Baidoa, regional senior official Hassan Hussein Elay said.
Elay accused the militant Islamist group al-Shabaab of poisoning the well.
"Al-Shabaab poisoned the waterhole to prevent government soldiers from drinking water there," he said, without providing details.
