A journalist among dozens killed in Mogadishu bombing


MOGADISHU [SMN] – Mohamed Issa Koona, a TV journalist, who previously worked for Shabelle Media Network is among dozens of people killed in Mogadishu blasts on Saturday.


The TV reporter died while covering an attack targeting the headquarters of the ministry of education in the Zoobe area, where two explosions were heard in the span of 5 minutes.

Hodon district police boss was also among the dead while several other security officials and civilians were wounded in the attack, which becomes the biggest in years.

The wounded were rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment by ambulances.

The bombing comes as Al-Shabaab is facing military pressure in central Somalia, where the army with the support of local militia regained control of several areas since last month.
