MOGADISHU OCTOBER 29: At least 30 people, including several children, were killed when two car bombs detonated outside Somalia’s Ministry of Education in the capital Mogadishu on Saturday. This is reported by AP.

– The ruthless terrorists killed mothers. Some of them died with their children on their backs, said a spokesperson for local police at a press conference according to AFP.

The first explosion hit the ministry then the second blast occurred as ambulances arrived and people gathered to help the victims, police officer Nur Farah told Reuters.

The attack took place at the same point where Somalia’s largest bombing took place the same month in 2017.

Authorities said the Islamist group al Shabaab carried out the attack, which they said had targeted the education ministry, an intersection and a school.

The president, prime minister and other senior officials were meeting on Saturday to discuss combating violent extremism, especially by the al-Qaida-affiliated al-Shabaab group, which often targets the capital.
