Somalia: Car Bomb Explosion Targets Government Building
On 10 September, at least 6 people were killed and another 16 injured after a car bomb exploded outside a government office in Mogadishu. Last week, a suicide car bomb carried out by al Shabaab armed group destroyed another district office of Mogadishu.
Avoid travel to Somalia. For any business-critical travel, travellers are advised to vary their routines regularly and avoid all travel after dark. Al-Shabaab and other Islamic extremists frequently carry out attacks and kidnap travellers. Attacks are generally directed at security force checkpoints, government buildings, police stations and hotels. Exercise particular caution in and around these areas and report any suspicious packages, behaviour or activity to the authorities.
