At least two people are dead and several more are injured after a car bomb exploded in Mogadishu, Somalia, Saturday morning two weeks after a massive attack killed more than 350 people.
The Associated Press reported two different explosions were heard in the area of a popular hotel in Mogadishu and gunfire was reported in the moments following the explosions.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the terror group al-Shabab is known for bombing high-profile targets in the Somali capital city.
The American military has a presence in Somalia, with at least 20 drone strikes carried out in 2017, according to the report.
The truck bomb attacks two weeks ago in Mogadishu were among the deadliest terror attacks in the country’s history. It resulted in the country asking regional partners to keep their military forces in the country for longer than originally anticipated — 22,000 African Union troops are expected to be withdrawn in 2020.
