Mogadishu teashop bombing draws strong condemnation

MOGADISHU, Somalia - A deadly suicide attack in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Saturday evening, for which no group immediately claimed responsibility, has drawn strong wide condemnation. 

At least five civilians, including a child, were killed and many more injured after a bomber blew himself up at a busy café in the city’s ancient Shangani district at 7:00 P.M. local time.

In a statement issued through his Twitter handle, the caretaker PM Mohamed Hussein Roble has strongly condemned the “heinous terrorist attack” on the innocent people taking time at the teashop.   

Roble whose government has failed in the security and the fight against Al-Shabaab has expressed his “deepest sympathies to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to those injured”.  

Turkey and some members of Somalia’s international also denounced the bloody blast. 

The attack came hours after Al-Shabaab launched multiple assaults against Somali army bases in Barire and Awdhegle areas, where a high number of militants and soldiers were killed on Friday night.

The Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group has intensified raids amid political and electoral crisis in the country that is attributed to the incompetence and failed leadership of Farmajo whose mandate ended on Fe 8.
