Dr. Abdulkadri Adam, Amen Ambulance Service said that more people died due to wounds in the last few hours. The funeral of the dead has started. The government has said that the number of deaths may increase. This is the most horrific attack in the world in recent years.
According to the police, the truck blast happened in the most crowded area of Mogadishu and the figure of the dead is continuously rising. According to police sources, the blast was so tremendous that the people standing in the range of around 100-150 meters were also caught in the grip. The injured have been admitted to hospitals in Mogadishu for treatment. However, many people have suffered such serious injuries that the police are also having trouble identifying them.
Somalia’s government has described the militant terrorist organization Al-Shabab as responsible for the blast.
