34 killed and 50 injured in car bomb in Mogadishu

MOGADISHU, 20th February, 2017 — At least 34 people have been killed and about 50 injured in a car bomb blast in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

According to the BBC website, the car blew up in the city’s southern Madina district, and the blast, which ripped through shops and food stalls, is the first major attack in the capital since the election of President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed earlier this month.

No group has claimed responsibility, although al-Shabab militants are likely to be the prime suspects, as on Saturday a senior al-Shabab commander vowed to target the president’s supporters.

President Mohamed has condemned the bombing, accusing al-Shabab of being behind the attack and urged Somalis to unite against the group’s brutality.
