Somalia Bombing: President Appeals for International help for Wounded Victims

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Somalia’s president has issued an urgent appeal for foreign assistance for the injured victims of the weekend car bombings that killed 100 people.

The administration issued a blood donation appeal as dozens of people gathered outside hospitals in Mogadishu, seeking news of family members.

On Saturday in Mogadishu, two cars loaded with bombs exploded minutes apart near the popular Zobe intersection, followed by gunfire in an attack on Somalia’s education ministry.

The incident occurred at the same major intersection when a vehicle packed with explosives exploded on October 14, 2017, killing 512 people and injuring more than 290 in the country’s deadliest attack.

Today, bulldozers continue to remove the blast site in Mogadishu’s capital in search of bodies believed to be trapped beneath the wreckage.

Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the bombings, claiming that its forces targeted the Ministry of Education.

The White House on Sunday also condemned the “tragic terrorist attack in Mogadishu… and in particular, its heinous targeting of the Somali Ministry of Education and first responders.
