 Up to 70 people were killed and dozens injured in a suicide attack on 4 October in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, when a truck crashed into a compound housing government ministries.

"Ar around 10.45am [7.45am GMT] a truck tried to break down the gate to the Harkaha [government compound] but failed; the explosion killed mostly students checking exam results, passersby and police guards," a source told IRIN.
A local journalist, one of the first people at the scene, told IRIN Mogadishu residents were expecting that Al-Shabab insurgents would resort to assassinations and suicide bombings, "but I don't think anyone expected it on this scale".

Ali Muse, head of the Lifeline Africa ambulance service, told IRIN ambulances were still picking up the dead and the injured. "I have seen a lot in this city but this has to be one of the worst scenes ever," he said. "Once we are done with the rescue efforts, I am sure the death toll will rise."

Somalia - Struggling to reach the sick




Somalia's humanitarian crisis has sunk to its lowest point in two decades, with escalated hostilities since May around the capital, Mogadishu, putting the lives of millions, including women and children, at risk and jeopardizing recent health gains.
Almost 3.6 million people nationwide need emergency assistance, among them 1.5 million Somalis displaced by violence and hampered by a fifth-consecutive season of drought. In recent months, 500 000 of these displaced have been uprooted yet again by violence around Mogadishu, heaping further humanitarian hardship onto these war-weary people.
Low funding of humanitarian efforts is another major concern. Emergency health interventions such as mobile clinics for displaced people's settlements and the early warning and surveillance of key infectious and communicable diseases are at great risk due to this lack of funding.
This photo essay highlights the humanitarian health challenges facing Somalis in this chronically troubled part of the world and the efforts by health providers to try meet their needs.
