  • Turkey opens its largest military academy in Somalia

Seven people were killed and 10 others wounded, in a auto bomb explosion in a crowded market in Mogadishu, Thursday (9/28/2017), Somali officials have informed. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Al-Shabab claimed 21 had been killed.

The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, Ambassador Francisco Caetano Madeira, has strongly condemned last evening's Al shabaab attack on civilians, at a market in a suburb in the capital Mogadishu.

Witness said a government security vehicle was nearby at the time of the attack, but it isn't immediately clear whether it was the bomb's intended target.

Residents, who spoke on condition of anonymity fearing their safety, said there was a heavy exchange of gunfire between government troops and Al-Shabaab militants.


Somali government paid compensation "blood money" for the families who lost their loved ones in the attack, after refusing to bury the dead bodies, and held rally in Mogadishu in protest of the killing.

Most of the victims were civilians in a minibus which was passing the area when the vehicle bomb exploded.

Despite being ousted from large parts of the south and central Somalia, al-Shabab continues deadly attacks across the country, which has been ravaged by decades of war and poverty.
