23 Killed in Somalia Bombings

(Last Updated On: October 29, 2017)

Two car bombs killed at least 23 people in Somalia‘s capital Mogadishu on Saturday, police said, and Islamist group al Shabaab claimed responsibility.

A suicide car bomb was rammed into a hotel, Nasahablod Two, about 600 meters from the presidential palace, and then armed militants stormed the building, police said.

A few minutes later, a car bomb exploded near the former parliament house nearby.

Among the dead were a mother and three children, including a baby and a former lawmaker all shot in the head, officials said.

Al Shabaab is fighting to topple Somalia’s internationally-backed government and impose its strict interpretation of Islam’s sharia law.
