Two people were killed in Mogadishu by a roadside bomb. This is believed to be the work of the terrorist organization and Islamic extremist group, Al-shabaab. Al-shabaab has been using this tactic to try and fight the Somali army and African union. They are also well known for targeting Christians and church with their attacks.
07/02/2017 Somalia (TheStar) – A roadside bomb struck a minibus north of the Somali capital Mogadishu late on Saturday, killing two people and injuring six others, police said.
The blast occurred on a busy road in the Elasha district less than 20 kilometres northeast of the capital, said Dahir Ahmed, a police major.
“The bomb killed the driver and a woman and injured six other civilians,” he told Reuters.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, although al Shabaab has carried out regular attacks on officials, government offices and civilian sites.
