It was unclear if the violence was linked but it came days after Isis urged its followers "to make Ramadan a month of calamities for the nonbelievers".

Al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda linked terrorist group, also attacked an African Union base in Somalia and killed at least 25 members of the force trying to bring stability to the region.

A suicide car bomb was detonated before gunmen stormed the base in Lego, while militants reportedly beheaded women.
