BREAKING NEWS: Somali Parliament Under Attack

Hiiraan Online
Saturday, May 24, 2014

There was a loud blast heard in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, in a compound where the country’s Parliament is located.

The cause of the blasts are not made clear at the moment

The first Parliament in Somalia since the collapse of government in 1992 was sworn in two years ago.

Since then the fragile federal government has been waging a war to rid al-Shabab Islamists, which were pushed out of Mogadishu in late 2012, but still remain a threat to stability in the Horn of Africa nation.

Last month, a Somali member of Parliament was blown up, and another shot dead in separate assaults. 

HOL will report any developments about the attack.
