Roadside blast kills three in Somali capital

At least three people have been killed and two others wounded in a roadside blast in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu.

The blast targeted a government military vehicle near the city’s ex-Control Afgoye area.

Witnesses said the blast killed three civilians who were in the area during the time of the attack and injured two government soldiers.

No group has said it was responsible for the bombing.

The attack happened as residents of the Somali capital were preparing to break their fast.

Mogadishu witnesses such blasts frequently.

Meanwhile, Somali authorities say at least 30 people have died and many more are missing after a rare tropical cyclone and heavy rainfall battered the country at the weekend.

At least 15 people were killed in the breakaway republic of Somaliland over the weekend after cyclone Sagar hit the Horn of Africa.

Six others died in Mogadishu and many properties were submerged as heavy rains hit the Somali capital.

Authorities fear the death toll could rise as rescue workers tried to reach remote villages. The country has a poor infrastructure due to decades of absence of a central government.

The UN and Somalia have launched an appeal to raise money for hundreds of thousands of people affected by flooding in the country.

  5. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

  7. Great post. Btw did anyone try this product: http://bit.ly/2N5npwG Seems like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. I’ve come across it a week ago and decided I’ll give it a try just to see how good it is. Have seen some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not all products out there have so many positive opinions. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).

  9. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
