A prominent journalist and media activist was severely wounded following the detonation of an under-vehicle improvised explosive device (UVIED) in Mogadishu on Tuesday, December 4. The incident occurred around 15:40 (local time) along Makka al-Makaramah road in downtown Mogadishu. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as of Tuesday evening.


This is the second UVIED attack in downtown Mogadishu in the past three days and seventh since November 1. The bombings have targeted regional Members of Parliament, civil servants, military officers, and a clan elder. Mogadishu remains at risk of violent activity, including bombings and assassinations.


Individuals in Mogadishu are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Somalia remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas with proper security protocols in place, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
