BREAKING: Suicide bombers in Somalia strike UN compound (and other targets)!! (Updated)
Suicide bombers struck targets across northern Somalia on Wednesday, including a U.N. compound, officials said. There were deaths and dozens of injuries, but an exact figure was still unclear.
“We are still counting the bodies,” said Ismail Adani, a spokesman for the government of the breakaway republic of Somaliland, where bombers hit the U.N. compound, the Ethiopian Consulate and the presidential palace.
Suicide bombers also attacked two intelligence facilities in the northern Somali region of Puntland on Wednesday. The two suicide bombers died in the attack and six security officials were wounded, said Muse Gelle Yusuf, governor of Somalia’s northern port city of Bossaso. The region is a hotbed of abductions and piracy.
UPDATE: 19 killed in 3 terrorist attacks.
