 suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Somali prime minister's office known as Villa Somalia on Tuesday, army officials said. Several others were injured in the attack in central Mogadishu, AFP quoted Somali military official Abdukadir Ali as saying. Separate reports said at least one soldier was killed and two wounded after the suicide bombing.

The Italian government and the African Union mission in Somalia (AMISOM) have separately condemned the Tuesday suicide attack targeting a compound near the presidential palace that killed at least two people and injuring dozen others.
At least one member of the Somali National Army died and two others were injured when they stopped a suicide bomber from accessing a compound next to the Ethiopian Embassy which is located near Villa Somalia.
In a statement from its ambassador to the Somalia, Andrea Mazzella, Italy strongly condemned the cowardly attack against Villa Somalia by unknown assailants.
“This episode reinforces our belief that the Authorities of the Somali Government are working in the right direction to fight against Al-Shabaab and to re-bring the country to the path of peace and economic development,” reads the statement in part.
Italy said in its statement that it is nowadays increasing its contacts with the Somali authorities with the aim of strengthening its bilateral cooperation in various areas, particularly in security sector, in order to guarantee the stability in the capital and in other critical areas of the country.
“We want to assure our deepest solidarity and closeness to the families of the victims of this shameful attack, and to all the people of Somalia, in this very critical and important turning point in the Somali history,” said the statement from the Italian ambassador to Somalia.
Italy appealed to Somalia forces to support the government’s efforts for peace, reconciliation and stabilization.
“We understand the despair of many Somalis living in poverty, without a job, without dignity, with nothing to eat for themselves and their children, and we would like to address them a warm appeal to continue fighting for a better future, without succumbing to the ideology of those who propose them, alternatively, to destroy their own life and the one of other Somalis,” it added.
In a similar statement, the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission on Somalia, Mohamat Annadif, condemned today’s terrorist attack in the Somali capital and praised the quick action of the Somali forces which prevented loss of civilian life.
“The heroic actions of the dead soldier and his compatriots have saved many Somali lives,” said Annadif, adding that the attack comes at a time when the city has been enjoying its longest period of relative peace in 20 years.
“AMISOM is committed to continuing to support the Somali National Security Forces and to build up their capacity to defend the people of Somalia,” he said.
Annadif offered his heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the dead soldier and his prayers for the quick recovery of the injured.
He noted that security in the capital has markedly improved after AMISOM Police units begun night patrols alongside their Somali counterparts last month.

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.
