Somalia suicide blast death toll goes over 100: UN

Al-Shabaab has threatened more attacks, saying they will be "back-to-back" and will "increase day by day."



Mogadishu (Somalia): The UN says the death toll
has gone over 100 after a suicide car bombing that targeted a
government compound in Somalia`s war-ravaged capital.

The UN`s office for the coordination of humanitarian
affairs said in a report released Thursday that the blast is a
stark reminder of the prevailing insecurity in Somalia amid a
debilitating famine.

A truck loaded with drums of fuel exploded Tuesday at the
gate of compound housing several government ministries on a
busy Mogadishu street. It was the deadliest single bombing
carried out by al-Shabab in Somalia since their insurgency
began.

The group promised more attacks, saying they will be
"back-to-back" and will "increase day by day." Most of the
group`s fighters left the capital in August after an offensive
by African Union forces.
