At least 19 people have been killed in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu. Security forces were engaged in a nearly 20-hour siege by Al-Shabaab insurgents on Friday.
Aamin Ambulance director, Abdikadir Abdirahman said they “have recovered 14 more dead bodies from under the rubble of collapsed buildings, bringing the total number of dead to 19”.
Medics had earlier pulled five bodies from the wreckage immediately after the explosion, but the recovery of more bodies was blocked by the ensuing fighting.
