Event

According to local sources, at least ten people were killed in a bombing attack carried out near Hodan district headquarters in Mogadishu on Monday, September 10. At least 20 other people have reportedly been injured. The vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) detonated at approximately 10:00 (local time). Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Context

Al-Shabaab continues to control large zones in the south and center of Somalia and attacks from the group are frequent across the country, including in Mogadishu. The group often targets government officials and military infrastructure in a bid to topple the Western- and UN-backed government and impose its own strict interpretation of Islam in Somalia.

Advice

Individuals in Mogadishu are advised to avoid the area of the blast, remain vigilant, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities. 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.
