Somalia: Islamic terrorists kill 38
A NINE-man suicide commando has blasted its way into Mogadishu’s main court complex, some blowing up their explosives vests while others sprayed gunfire in a rampage that left 29 civilians dead, while a separate bomb attack killed five more.
The al-Qa’ida-linked al-Shabab militant group claimed responsibility for Sunday’s courthouse attack, which the country’s chief justice escaped unharmed on the worst day of violence the city has seen in months.
“The African Union force, the Somalia national army and local police have cleared the building. The latest figures indicate that there are 29 killed civilians, nine dead Shabab militants and 58 people injured,” a security officer said.
