TRUCK BOMB KILLS SCORES INCLUDING MANY STUDENTS IN MOGADISHU  

A truck bomb has exploded in central Mogadishu, killing at least 79 people including many university students, and injuring more than 100 in the deadliest attack on the Somali capital for more than two years. The bomber struck during the Saturday morning rush hour, the start of Somalia’s working week. The mayor, Omar Mohamud Mohamed, told reporters at the blast site that most of those killed were civilians, including two Turkish citizens.

Somali police chief Abdi Hassan Mohamed told reporters that the “devastating” circumstances had made it hard to establish the number of casualties. “Now we can elaborate on the death toll which stands 79 at the moment and the wounded are 100 plus,” he said. “There can be one or two more people who may be dead.” Read more HERE.
