Blast at Livestock Market in Somali Capital Kills at Least TwoMohamed Sheikh Nor
At least two people were killed and two others injured when an explosive device detonated at an open-air livestock market in Somalia’s capital, a local official said.
The device had been planted at a restaurant stand in the market in Mogadishu’s Kaaraan district, commissioner Omary Meyre Ma’ow said by phone. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast. Al-Qaeda-linked militant group al-Shabaab regularly stages attacks in the city.
