More than 30 people were killed when an explosive-filled truck rolled into a government complex in Somalia on Tuesday. Casualties included students registering for an education program, their parents and several government soldiers. The truck crashed into the gate of the complex containing the education ministry. Students and parents were there to register for a Turkish education program.
There has been no claim of responsibility yet in the bombing, but Somali police representative Abdullahi Barise blamed Al-Shabaab, an Islamic movement with al Qaeda links. The United States designated Al-Shabaab as a terrorist organization in 2008. The group has been severely deteriorated due to strikes against its members and the weakening of al Qaeda.
