Oxfam reports 70 nomads killed in Somalia bombings

According to the international relief agency Oxfam, based in Nairobi, its partner organizations in Somalia report that recent bombing raids have claimed the lives of at least 70 people. Reports indicate that bombs have hit vital water sources as well as large groups of nomads and their animals who had gathered around large fires at night to ward off mosquitoes.
