Hargeisa (Somali Commentator) Three children perished during morning hours on Saturday after their father started a fierce blaze in his home in the Idaacadda Village suburb. This has been confirmed by Somaliland’s head of Emergency Services Col. Ahmed Mohammed Hassan Sawahili talking to the reporters early in the morning. Col. Sawahili said, “At 10 a.m. in this morning (Saturday), we suddenly heard the incident and soon rushed to the scene. Fortunately, we managed to bring the fire under control.”
As the colonel stated, three children passed away while the father is in severe injury and is at the moment undertaking a treatment at Hargeisa Hospital. “Unfortunately, three children have passed one; we managed to save the father. Early in the morning the neighbouring families heard the screaming of the children – the room of the children was closed and the blaze was fiercely spreading.”
Yet, the real cause of the fire is unknown but the neighbours blame the incident to the father who has been recently threatening the family that his is going to burn his children away if they do not obey him.
