A bomb blast outside main government buildings in Mogadishu has killed many people and left several others wounded, the co-ordinator of Somalia capital’s ambulance service said on Tuesday 10/04/2011. A car laden with explosives blew up in front of the Ministry of Education in the Somali capital Tuesday, killing 65 people in the biggest attack since an Islamist insurgent group withdrew from Mogadishu, a rescue official said. Students, soldiers and civilians were among the dead in Tuesday’s attack (see also – Mogadishu 06.10.11).
“We have carried 65 dead bodies and 50 injured people,” he said. “Some are still lying there. Most of the people have burns.” al-Shabab, the armed anti-government group, claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred when three cabinet ministers were inside the building. There were initial reports that the labor minister was injured in the blast.
