Somalia Terrorist attack By: Kristelle

The Dayah Hotel

At Somalia’s Dayah hotel, on wednesday the 25th, another rebellious terrorist attack targeted was launched. The Dayah hotel is located in Somalia’s capital city, Mogadishu.

A Car Bomb

To begin the attack, car filled with bombs was crashed into the front gate. Attacks then paraded inwards. Security guards and the attacks were both shooting at each other. Later, when other people, including news agencies, had arrived at the scene, a second car bomb exploded.

The Parliament Building of Somalia

The Dayah hotel often is the home away from home for many Somalia politicians. The hotel is also located near Somalia’s parliament.

Complete Ruins

Around the hotel, the area was in complete chaos. Houses destroyed. Windows broken. Parked cars immensely damaged. The amount of ruin was extreme.

Many People Hurt

One man is quoted saying: “I see people crying because they lost relatives.” The ambulance services directors is quoted “We have confirmed 28 people died and 43 others were injured in the two blast at the hotel.” Many lives were touched by the disaster.

Al-Shabab- Dangerous Rebellion Group

Officials claimed the area was succered soon after the attack. Which leads us to the question of: who is responsible? Al-shabab is holding themselves accountable for the attack. They have claimed responsibility for many other terrorist attacks in Somalia. There goal to to take down Somalia’s western based government. They are armed and dangerous. hate and conflict are still raging in Somalia.

Many Attacks

Al-Shabab are responsible for many terrorist attacks in Somalia, and other countries. They have been accounted for approximately 306 Somalia attacks. The government will continue to try and stable the county. Until then, we hope for peace.
