5 others, including soldiers, also wounded in attack targeting district commissioner
At least two people were killed and five wounded, including soldiers, Tuesday when a car bomb blast targeted an official in the Somali capital Mogadishu, officials said.
The bomb attack went off near the Sinka Dher intersection in Mogadishu.
The Al-Shabaab terrorist group targeted the Kahda district commissioner with a car bomb blast killing two people and wounding five others, including soldiers and the Kahda district spy chief, Abdifatah Hassan, a police captain in Mogadishu, told Anadolu Agency.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency by phone, Ismail Mukhtar Oronjo, a Somali government spokesman, said the attack came after a suspected al-Shabaab gunman shot dead Ibrahim Alow, an administrator in Kahda, and Fadumo Matan, a member of a COVID-19 awareness team.
"The bomb attack took place when the district commissioner and other officials reached the crime scene, he said, adding that investigations are underway.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Somali-based, al-Qaeda-affiliated militant group al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for many recent attacks in the Horn of Africa country.

Turkey has been helping rebuild Somalia for almost a decade now - a war-torn and famine-ridden African nation. But why?

IOW, just another normal day in Mogadishu.
Ilhan Omar, your shithole country needs you back !
Right now !!
I wonder....really wonder....if our locally grown terrorists will resort to bombings....God forbid....
My first thought was , “wow sucks for them”. followed by “here’s a quarter , call someone that give damn. “
Yep. CW2 won't look anything like the first one. Guerilla urban warfare is what we're looking at. Small explosive devices - car bombs, backpacks, pressure cookers, molotov cocktails, etc.
If the crazies blew up the whole of this crap hole it would be a good thing.
