Shocking Aftermath Of Mogadishu Bomb Blast That Killed Over 230(Graphic Photos) by Explorers(m): 8:12pm On Oct 17, 2017
MOGADISHU, Somalia




The most powerful bomb blast ever witnessed in Somalia's capital killed at least 231 people with more than 275 injured, a senator said Sunday, making it the deadliest single attack in this Horn of Africa nation.




The toll could continue to rise.




The Mogadishu bombing is one of the deadliest attacks in sub-Saharan Africa, larger than the Garissa University attack in Kenya in 2015 and the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.


Doctors at Mogadishu hospitals struggled to assist badly wounded victims, many burned beyond recognition.


"This is really horrendous, unlike any other time in the past," said Dr. Mohamed Yusuf, the director of Medina hospital.

There is a name in Benin language that says ''okuoimose'' meaning ''war isn't beautiful''. War is never an option because at the end,it is no victor,no vanguish. We must always preach and ensure peace at all times.

We have almost come to a point where the number of deaths looks like an ordinary mathematical number. It is only when a loved one is a victim that we realise that those numbers represent human lives! RIp to the dead.

It can never be well with anyone doing this or taking joy in it.


It can never be well with war mongers, people who love destruction, who destroy rather than build.


And the people who sponsor them, produce and provide guns and bombs - because they only have one purpose and it is to destroy.

All small Islamic nations should be grateful to Turkey they are just a great big brother, better than saudi in all ramifications. The muslim world will remember them as a nation that saved Islam when the world was at a critical time.

Somalia has been a failed state for decades. It is a shame that a country that is 100% Somali, and has almost 100% Muslim population cannot forge ahead in unity of purpose. RIP to the dead.

RIP to the dead, to those blaming it on religion ask yourself why such things hardly happen in UAE and Saudi.

Some people are just wicked and evil, the case of the Las Vegas shooter comes to mind, the man does not have any known religious affliation and he still committed that atrocity.

Wicked people using religion as reason for their evil acts.

God help us all.
