Restaurant bombing kills 15 in Mogadishu

7 September 2013

At least 15 people have been killed after two bombs exploded at the Village restaurant in Somali's capital, Mogadishu.  The militant Islamist group al-Shabab have claimed responsibility for the attack, saying "successful operations carried out in Hamarweyne".

Securing specialist Somalia insurance should be central to preparations for visiting this war torn and largely ungoverned country. Due to ongoing armed conflict, widespread violent crime, piracy and the specific targeting of westerners for hostage, travel to Somalia is strongly discouraged without expert advice and the strictest security precautions.
