Death toll rises to 90 in Mogadishu rush-hour car bombing

The blast that killed at least 90 people took place at a checkpoint at a busy intersection in the Somali capital, Mogadishu,  early Saturday. Many of the dead were university students as well as children. Some may have also been Turkish engineers who were constructing a road nearby. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the massacre but al-Shabab which is allied to Al-Qaeda has carried out frequent acts of terror since it was forced out of the capital nine years ago.

    Ilhan Omar should feel proud of herself and her followers for their effort here…….. this was most likely funded by her and her ilk.

    Somali & Nigeria Societies are Falling Apart into Chaos due to Criminal & Pirate Gangs in spite of Rich Oil & Resources whose own Energy Infrastructure is being destroyed every day much like Venezuela. Killings are continuing on every level every day.

    You make it sound like sticking up for the injustice done to the Palestinians and speaking out against other injustices are mutually exclusive?

    Illan Omar and the rest of the brat squad are bad news in my opinion. However her and all if our politicians need to be putting Americans first not other nations. So bringing our troops home and cutting military aid to all other nations should be our first step to allocating our resources to transform American infrastructure and American lives.
