Somalian President, Mr. Hassan Mohamud says twin car bomb explosions that occurred yesterday near a busy junction in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, killed at least one hundred people.
In a broadcast, the President blamed the al-Shabab militant group for the attack, which targeted the education Ministry.
He said the attack that massacred mothers with their children in their arms, happened within minutes of each other, destroying buildings and vehicles in the vicinity.
The President also appealed for international medical help to deal with the three hundred people that are injured.
Reports say the pro-jihadist Somali Memo Website has reported that the group was behind the blasts.
