10 Killed In Airport Blasts In Somalia
Somali police confirmed at least 10 people are feared dead in two car bomb attacks near an entrance to the airport in Mogadishu, Local journalists said one of the bombs was detonated by a suicide attacker near a checkpoint. Another blast hit the airport’s perimeter wall. Those killed were believed to include security guards at the checkpoint.
The militant Islamist group, al-Shabab, has said it was behind the blasts and its target was the AU force’s headquarters. Al-Shabab has carried out frequent attacks in Somalia, including in Mogadishu, in an attempt to oust the UN-backed government. The group, which is allied to al-Qaeda, has been pushed out of most of the main towns it once controlled, but analysts say it remains a potent threat.
Let’s pray for Somalia and the World eniterly.
