Death toll from Mogadishu blasts rises to 32: Sources
Mogadishu: The death toll from twin
explosions that rocked a mosque in Mogadishu now stands at at
least 32, medical sources and a witness said Sunday.
Ali Muse head of Mogadishu`s ambulance service, who
earlier gave a toll of 25 for yesterday`s explosions, told AFP
that at least a further five people died of their injuries
"I`m getting that five more people died in Deynile
hospital overnight. I think the number could rise even
further since some of the injured are still in a critical
condition," he said.
An additional two people died from their wounds overnight
in a different part of town, according to Husein Yusuf,
another Mogadishu resident.
Somalia`s transitional government condemned the blasts,
whose exact cause is still unknown.
"This attack was one of the most barbaric acts ever in
this country," Dahir Mohamoud Gele, Somalia`s information
minister, told reporters today.
"Somalia is not culturally known for targeting places of
worship. We strongly condemn this attack which killed many
civilians," he said.
"This kind of tactic is new and is brought from outside
the country," he added.
