Somalia: Death toll surges to 276 in Mogadishu blast

A massive bomb attack in a busy area of the Somali capital Mogadishu on Saturday is now known to have killed at least 276 people, police say.

Abdirahman Osman on Sunday said on Twitter that around 300 others were also wounded in the powerful explosion at a busy road junction, which flattened nearby homes and businesses and turned vehicles into burned wrecks.

No group has yet said it was behind the bombing.

“Brothers, this cruel act were targeted at civilians who were going about their business,” President Mohamed Abdullahi said.
