  • 300+ dead, 300+ injured in Mogadishu

    It is the single deadliest attack ever in the Horn of Africa nation.

    Police said a truck bomb exploded outside the Safari Hotel at the K5 intersection, which is lined with government offices, restaurants and kiosks, flattening buildings and setting vehicles on fire. A separate blast struck the Medina district two hours later.

    More than 200 were injured in the explosion outside of the hotel and hospitals are struggling to cope with the high number of casualties.

    Officials feared the death toll would continue to climb.


    The Red Cross said four volunteers with the Somali Red Crescent Society are among the dead and warned "this figure may rise as there are a number of volunteers still missing."

      I have never actually heard of Mogadishu. It’s so sad how this stuff happens, no one should have to be scared to simply get up and go to work!

            It's so sad and terrifying.

                          Huge death toll. :(

                          Have IS claimed responsibility? Or was this a domestic incident?

                                  "We have confirmed 300 people died in the blast. The death toll will still be higher because some people are still missing," Abdikadir Abdirahman, the director of the city's ambulance service, told Reuters on Monday.

                                    Al Shabaab will probably claim responsibility. They are the dominant terror organization in Africa along with Boko Haram.
