At least 25 dead and 40 wounded when exploding a car bomb in Mogadishu

At least 25 people died and more than 40 were injured this Sunday in the explosion of a car bomb at a roadside checkpoint in Mogadishu, at the busy intersection that connects the Somali capital with the town of Afgoye, according to medical sources.

According to Dr. Yahye Ismail, this number of fatalities is provisional and conservative, since it only takes into account the dead in the Erdogan and Maddina hospitals, from which the population that comes to donate blood is urged.

Among the deceased there are at least two engineers of Turkish nationality, who at the time of the explosion carried out works on this road that links Mogadishu with Afgoye, and several university students who were inside a minibus crossing the crossing.
