Somalia car bomb strikes EU convoy
A suicide car bombing by al Shabaab hit a European Union armored convoy in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu on Monday, damaging one vehicle but causing no casualties, police said.
Al Shabaab frequently carries out attacks in the Horn of Africa country,Reuters reported.
The al Qaeda-affiliated militants want to topple Somalia’s Western-backed central government and impose their own rule.
The European Union is one of the major sources of funding for the African Union-mandated peace keeping force AMISOM which helps defend Somalia’s central government against the extremists.
