MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) A civilian was killed after Somalia militant group, Al Shabaab, which is affiliated to Alqaeda claimed to have fired several rounds of Mortars at the Somali presidential palace on Thursday, witnesses said.
Witnesses said that a mother of eight children were killed by the mortar rounds, while preparing to break her fast.

The Alqaeda affiliated Somali Militant group, Al Shabaab immediately claimed the responsibility of the attack, saying that 5 mortar rounds fired by the group hit the presidential palace.

The group has been under intense pressure from the American airstrikes recently, after the US military intensified its air campaign against the Shabab and the ISIS affiliated group based in Puntland, following 14 October terrorist bombing that killed more than 400 people in Mogadishu.
