al-Shabaab claim responsibility for deadly blast in Mogadishu

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Islamist group al Shabaab on Monday claimed responsibility for a bomb blast in Mogadishu that killed at least 90 people over the weekend while Somalia said a foreign government that it did not identify helped plan the attack.

The attack hit a busy checkpoint in the southwest of the city, leaving vehicles charred and twisted at a crossroads in the deadliest assault in two years in the Horn of Africa country.

Dozens more were wounded in an area clogged with traffic because of the security checkpoint and a tax office collecting fees from trucks and buses.
