Somalia Blast: President Hassan Sheikh has blamed the terrorist organization Al-Shabaab for the bomb blasts in Somalia's capital Mogadishu.
Somalia: Two car bombs exploded in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, killing at least 100 people. The incident happened outside the Ministry of Education. Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh confirmed the incident in a statement, saying 300 people were injured.
In fact, two car bombs exploded in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu on Saturday, 29 October, in which 30 people were reported dead, while now the death toll has risen to 100. At the same time, no terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for this attack so far. President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud has called the attack cowardly, blaming the terrorist organization al-Shabaab for it.
“Our people who were massacred … included mothers with their children in their arms, fathers who had medical conditions, students who were sent to study, businessmen who were struggling with the lives of their families,” President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said after visiting the site of blast.
Al-Shabab often targets the capital with attacks on high-profile locations. These begin with explosions in the capital’s area and continue to battle gunmen entering and security teams.
The first of the explosions hit the education ministry near a busy junction in Mogadishu. The second occurred as ambulances arrived and people gathered to help the victims. This terrorist group had attacked the Education Ministry in the year 2015. In 2017, there was a massive al-Shabaab explosion in which more than 500 people were killed. The government of Somalia is engaged in a new offensive against the extremist faction that the United States has identified as one of al-Qaeda’s deadliest organizations.
