07092013 Somalia Battles Extremist Attacks

Ratings: (0)|Views: 19|Likes:
Extremist militants al Shabaab have claimed a double suicide attack on the popular Village Restaurant in the Somali capital Mogadishu that killed 18 people and injured over twenty more. The suicide attackers detonated two bombs at around lunchtime; one from a car bomb and the other from a second suicide bomber with a vest who detonated himself as people were trying to help those injured in the first blast.
The latest attack came minutes before President Hassan Sheik Mohamud opened a National Conference on Tackling Extremism in Somalia. The government-organised conference drew imminent Somali scholars, elders and Imams from both within the country and internationally to come up with strategies to fight against the extremism of the Al Qaeda linked al Shabaab group.
