Ottawa (HOL) - After an evening vigil on the steps of the nation's parliament on Thursday, Ottawa's Somali community will be fundraising dinner for the victims of last week's deadliest terror attack in the country's history.
MOGADISHU, Somalia — Thousands of anguished Somalis gathered to pray Friday at the site of the country's deadliest attack, while the toll rose to 358 and dozens remained missing. Somalia's president will announce a "state of war" against the al-Shabab extremist group blamed for the bombing, the prime minister said.
Dozens of people injured by Saturday’s terrorist bombing in Mogadishu -- which left at least 267 people dead -- have arrived in Khartoum for medical treatment, Khartoum’s local health minister told reporters on Thursday.
Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed vowed Wednesday to step up the war against Al-Shabaab, as he addressed thousands at a rally in Mogadishu for the victims of the city’s worst-ever bombing.
The man who killed more than 300 people with a truck bomb in the centre of Mogadishu on Saturday was a former soldier in Somalia’s army whose home town was raided by local troops and US special forces two months ago in a controversial operation in which 10 civilians were killed, officials in Somalia have said.
