Eight killed in suicide bombing targeting UN officials in the Somali capital


At least eight people were killed and others injured in a suicide bombing in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, targeting a convoy of officials from the United Nations office in Somalia, while the terrorist “Al-Shabab” movement claimed responsibility for the attack.
Somali Radio Dalsan stated that eight people were killed and several wounded when a car bomb driven by a suicide bomber targeted a United Nations convoy on October 21 Road, north of Adam Adde International Airport, near the residence of United Nations staff, and “Al-Shabab” movement claimed responsibility for the attack.
“Federal police forces cordoned off the area where the explosion occurred, closed the road and prevented the passage of public and private vehicles,” it added.
This suicide bombing targeting UN officials in Somalia is the second in two months. On November 25, the Somali police announced the killing of 8 people and wounding 17 others, when a car bomb exploded in the Somali capital Mogadishu, carried out by Al-Shabab targeting a convoy of a local security company guarding United Nations offices.
