Event

The detonation of an under-vehicle improvised explosive device (UVIED) reportedly wounded three people at Mogadishu's Bakara market on Sunday, June 30. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Police have launched an investigation into the assault; according to local sources, three people were arrested in connection with the incident.

Similar attacks are possible in Mogadishu over the near term.

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 monitor developments, avoid the affected area, 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.
