A truck bomb detonated in Mogadishu, Somalia at a security checkpoint, ripping through the crowd of citizens travelling during rush hour. At least 79 people have been killed and over 125 injured, with dozens severely hurt. President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed believes the act of terror was coordinated by the al-Shabab who have ties to al-Qaida. An emergency committee has been in action setting up centers to donate blood and connect family members with their killed loved ones.
