TERROR ATTACK:The al-Qaeda-linked Shebab Islamists claimed to have killed key officials in the explosions, but eyewitnesses say the victims were ordinary civilians


On July 12, just a couple of days into the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, insurgents killed at least five people in multiple attacks in the capital. A suicide bomber rammed an AU convoy and a grenade was thrown into a hotel.

Shebab fighters claimed members of their suicide brigade carried out the attack, calling it “a martyrdom operation targeting a convoy of crusaders.”
