A truck filled with explosives barreled into a government complex in the heart of Somalia's restive capital on Tuesday, a brazen strike killing students registering for an education program.
More than 30 people were killed, said Lt. Col. Paddy Nkunda, an African Union forces spokesman. Along with the students and parents, the casualties included several federal government soldiers, the AU forces said.
"This is a carnage," said Col. Abdullahi Barise, the spokesman of the Somali police. Barise blamed Al-Shabaab, the Islamist movement with links to al Qaeda. But there has been no immediate claim of responsibility.FULL STORY
