Somalia Alerte de sécurité

Suspected improvised explosive device (IED) attack kills two people and wounds several others in Mogadishu on July 16; similar attacks possible over the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 16/7/2019, 12h00 until 18/7/2019, 11h59 (Africa/Mogadishu). COUNTRY/REGION Mogadishu

Event

A suspected improvised explosive device (IED) attack killed two people and wounded several others in Mogadishu on Tuesday, July 16. The IED reportedly detonated at a telecommunications company building near Black Sea junction in Hodan district. Though no group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, Al-Shabaab militants have been known to carry out similar assaults in the capital.

Additional IED 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 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.
