Somalia Alerte de sécurité

Reports of mortar shell attack near the Presidential Palace (Villa Somalia) in Mogadishu September 11; further details still emerging

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/9/2019, 12h00 until 11/9/2019, 11h59 (Africa/Mogadishu). COUNTRY/REGION Mogadishu

Event

Media reports indicate at least three mortar shells landed around the Presidential Palace (Villa Somalia) in Mogadishu as of noon (local time) on Wednesday, September 11. A heightened security presence is to be expected in the area over the coming hours. Further details are still emerging; avoid the area.

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.
