MOGADISHU (Reuters) – More than 300 people died after twin bomb explosions in Mogadishu, an official said yesterday, as locals packed hospitals in search of friends and relatives caught up in Somalia’s deadliest attack in a decade. The death toll has steadily risen since Saturday, when the blasts – for which no organisation had claimed responsibility at press time – struck at two busy junctions in the heart of the city. “We have confirmed 300 people died in the blast. The death toll will still be higher because some people are still missing,” Abdikadir Abdirahman, the director of the city’s ambulance service, said. Aden Nur, a Madina hospital doctor, said 160 of the bodies could not be recognised. Some injured were being evacuated by air to Turkey.
