Mogadishu Car Bomb Leaves Two Somali Soldiers Dead

MOGADISHU – At least two Somali soldiers were killed on Wednesday after they intercepted a vehicle loaded with explosives and set to go off in an unidentified district in Mogadishu, according to police sources.

When security forces discovered the explosives, a radical from al-Shabab terror organization detonated the bomb, causing the death of those soldiers who were part of the security operation that prevented the attack.

The police commander of Mogadishu’s Wadajir district said that when the security forces discovered the car bomb, they tried to capture the driver alive but he blew up the vehicle.

Additionally, the blast caused minor wounds to other police officers.

Security forces were able to foil another attack by al-Shabab, which regularly attacks civilians, politicians and military personnel in Mogadishu and other areas in Somalia.

Somalia has been in a state of war and chaos since 1991 when dictator Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown.
