MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Large truck loaded with explosive devices shook Somalia's capital, Mogadishu on Saturday, killing several people officials and witnesses said.

"The truck was being chased by security forces, when the blast went off” the State media reported quoting  the Somali intelligence Chief Abdullahi Mohamed Ali as saying.

According to witnesses, the vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) has gone off at  busy intersection, Zoobe Area in downtown Mogadishu, sending volumes of smoke to the sky.  

"The scene turned deadly very immediately” Ali Abdullahi, a witnesses said, "This is the largest explosion I ever heard.”


In another incident on Saturday, the Militant Somali group, Al Shabab said that they had retaken the town of Barire without a fight, after Somali National Army withdrew from the town of Bariire of Lower Shabelle region.  Somali government is yet to comment on the withdrawal.

The attacks follows after political impasse between the Federal government of Somalia and its member states, in what many believe could have been foreign  interest based political interference.
