Mogadishu: There are ‘scores of civilian casualties’ after explosions struck a busy junction Saturday in Somalia’s capital near key government offices, police officials told Somalia state media.
According to news agency Xinhua report, three separate bomb blasts rocked Somali capital, Mogadishu on Saturday.
The police said one of the blasts targeted the Ministry of Education which is located at Zone junction while two other blasts were heard in the vicinity of K-5 junction which is home to government offices, hotels and restaurants.
