Somalia Alerte de sécurité

Suspected explosion reported in Mogadishu May 12; at least two people injured

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/5/2019, 12h00 until 12/5/2019, 11h59 (Africa/Mogadishu). COUNTRY/REGION Mogadishu

Event

Unconfirmed reports indicate an explosion occurred in the Taleh area of Mogadishu on Sunday, May 12. At least two people were wounded in the blast, which reportedly targeted a foreign engineer.  A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are likely in the affected area over the coming hours. 

Context

Al-Shabaab continues to exercise effective control over 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 West- and UN-backed government and impose its own strict interpretation of Islam in Somalia.

Advice

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

The security environment in Somalia remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
