Joe Biden Govt Speak After Al-Shabaab Attack That Targeted UN Officers Today, 25 Casualties Reported

A few hours after a deadly suicide attack that left behind at least 25 casualties, President Joe Biden government has broken the silence.

On Thursday morning, a heavy and loud explosion was heard in Somalia, in front of Mucassar school at Hodan district in Mogadishu.

The explosion resulted from a suicide bomber from Al-Shabaab, who targeted a convoy belonging to a local security firm that “guards the UN".

The bomber was driving a car that was full of explosives before ramming on their target, leading to a loud explosion.

Joe Biden's government through its US Embassy in Mogadishu has strongly condemned the blast

“Our thoughts are with the victims of this morning's bombing and with the families of those tragically killed and injured,” said the US embassy.

The morning attack as we had reported earlier resulted in at least 25 casualties, including 8 deaths on the spot.
