In an unfortunate event that happened on Friday, two bomb vehicles exploded in the Somali capital Mogadishu, one by the presidential palace and the other by a Jazeera hotel just meters away leaving about 38 people including militants and civilians dead.
The attack was claimed by al-Shabab, an Islamic militant group that controlled Mogadishu until 2011 when it was forced out by African Union troops and has since then been trying to oust the Somalian government. This attack is just one in the numerous series that have been launched by the group to the end of the above named.
The latest incident began when a vehicle failed to stop at a checkpoint outside the presidential palace before being blown up, state media say. This was followed by an exchange of fire between militants and security forces that left five militants dead. Then a parked car exploded near the hotel. However, al-Shabab said it had targeted security forces.
