Car Bomb in Somalia – level 2

05-03-2019 07:00

A car bomb exploded in the Somalian capital of Mogadishu, and at least four people died and eight people were injured.

The car bomb happened near the home of a local chief judge. However, his house was not the target, as it was a hotel. The Islamic extremist group, Al-Shabab, said that it carried out this attack.

Difficult words: chief (most important), judge (the most important person in the court of law, the person who says who goes to prison and who is free), target (a person or place which you want to attack).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
