This is the 2nd time this devils have targeted innocent students

UPDATE ON Al-Shabab claims deadly Mogadishu blast. Bomb attack outside government compound in Somali capital leaves at least 70 people dead and many others wounded.

The death toll in the  terror attack Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Tuesday is expected to soar to nearly ... More 100 people

At least 100 people were killed in Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Tuesday when a suicide truck bomb exploded outside a compound housing several government ministries.Responsibility for the attack, one of the most devastating in the city to date, was claimed by the Islamist militant group al-Shabaab. A bomb in a second vehicle reportedly failed to detonate.Just two months ago the al-Qaida-linked group announced its withdrawal from Mogadishu, following an offensive by government troops and African Union forces to retake the city as famine spread throughout the country.The bomber detonated a truckload of explosives at a security checkpoint outside a compound housing four ministries, including the Ministries of Education and External Relations.A second truck laden with explosives failed to go off and its current whereabouts is still being determined, Lieutenant Colonel Paddy Ankunda, a spokesman for the African Union peacekeeping force, told The Daily Telegraph.Ali Muse, the head of Mogadishu's ambulance services, told The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday night that the death toll had reached 100.Blackened bodies lay strewn across the streets at the heart of the government district in the K4 area of the capital. According to a government statement, many of the dead were students and parents who were waiting at the Ministry of Education for the results of applications for scholarships to study in Turkey.The Daily Telegraph counted more than 35 bodies at the blast site, including those of students, government soldiers and civilians. An unidentified minister was reportedly severely injured in the blast.Many people were trapped in the rubble after buildings collapsed and a rescue team was working to bring out survivors. Scores of wounded were transferred to Mogadishu's two main hospitals, Banadir and Medina. The explosion damaged houses nearly a mile away.Sheikh Ali Mohamed Rage, a spokesman for al-Shabaab, told the BBC that the group had carried out the attack, a claim repeated on a website that it regularly uses. A spokesman later warned civilians to stay away from government buildings and military bases because they were planning more attacks.Despite the insurgents' withdrawal from Mogadishu, security officials in the capital had been expecting an upsurge in guerrilla attacks as al-Shabaab shifted its tactics."We knew that they were planning something horrible, especially asymmetric violence such as suicide bombing," said Lt-Col Ankunda. "We need to be more vigilant and encourage the government to improve its policing."Rashid Abid, a Somalia analyst for the think-tank International Crisis Group, said: "They are sending a strong message: those who thought the movement was weakened will have to reconsider."
The attack - which has been strongly condemned by the United Nations - is also likely to complicate the delivery of humanitarian assistance to famine victims in the capital and surrounding areas. Al-Shabaab's withdrawal from Mogadishu - and an apparent willingness to allow aid into al-Shabaab-controlled areas - encouraged many international agencies to return to Mogadishu after a prolonged absence due to security concerns. But an attack of this scale will prompt many to reconsider.
"This is bad news for humanitarian operations. Many agencies were planning to relocate to Mogadishu, but this attack will inhibit their ability to supply those affected," added Mr Abdi.
In early September the United Nations warned that - without urgent help - 750,000 people were at risk of death from starvation in Somalia before the end of the year.
Al-Shabaab launched its insurgency against the Western-backed Transitional Federal Government in late 2006 and claimed affiliation with al-Qaida in 2007. The organization is believed to include foreign fighters who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq and have helped to train Somali militants in tactics such as suicide bombing and assassinations.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
