Mogadishu (HOL) - Several Somalis who were receiving emergency medical treatment in the UAE following Al Shabaab's deadly attack
near Zoobe junction in October returned to Mogadishu on Friday.
A plane carrying the blast victims was greeted at Aden Adde International Airport by Emirati Ambassador Ahmed Juma Al-Rumaythi.
Al Shabaab was responsible for the double explosion
on October 29 near the Federal Ministry of Education offices, killing over 12
0 and wounding an additional 300. The deadly terror attack occurred at the same busy intersection where al-Shabab militants killed over 500 people
five years earlier in a similar truck bomb attack.
Following the attack, seven of the most seriously wounded were airlifted
to the United Arab Emirates for further medical treatment.
Health officials in Somalia said that some of the victims are still in the UAE receiving treatment and would return to Somalia when they recover.
