According to a spokesperson for the AMISOM peacekeepers, a suicide bomber runs after the convoy of African Union peacekeepers, before he detonated the device on his body.
Biyereke Floribert, a spokesman for AU peacekeepers, told Digital Journal that the accident happened close to the Tribunka, just across the street from the ex Military hospital in Hodan district. Two of wounded were AMISOM soldiers, and three women who were passing on the street. Floribert blamed Al-shabaab who is waging war against the Transitional Federal Government.
It was less the one month ago, when a truck bomb killed more than 100 people and wounded almost 130 others. On the other hand Alshabaab congratulated the people of Libya. The Emir of Al-hsabaab in Somalia, Ahmed Abdi Godane, known as Mukhtar Abu-Zubeyr, “We are congratulating the Muslims, wherever they are, on the death and murder of one of bad leaders (Gaddafi) in the Islamic world in this era. But he was the weakest,” Ahmed Abdi Godane, Al Shabaab’s top leader said in a recorded message aired through Al Shabaab-run radio Andalus.
Godane talked about the combat between Somali government’s soldiers backed by AMISOM and Al-shabaab in Daynile saying: “Today is a historic day; it is a day that will be an ordeal to the enemy who invaded our country, it is the day that made clear the bullying of adversaries and their shame came forth,” Andalus radio quoted the militant spearhead as saying.
”Mogadishu will be the graveyard of the colony”, concluded illuminating that Al-shabab had killed a number of Burundi forces on Thursday battle in Daynile.
