Ramadan Highlight Of The Day: Nearly 70 dead in al-Shabab attack on Somalia military base

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Heavily armed al-Shabab extremists have stormed a military base in Somalia’s semiautonomous state of Puntland, killing close to 70 people and wounding dozens more, officials said Thursday. Residents said civilians, including women, were beheaded during the rampage.

Officials called it the region’s deadliest attack in years, highlighting the twin challenges facing security forces from the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab and the growing presence of fighters linked to the Islamic State group.

Good to see that al-Shabab has been defeated and is on the run.

    In Ottawa, Somali muslims can now boast about having the majority of Homicides and that muslims are the majority of victims.
    When 2 muslims with knives walked around the down town area and stabbed people….the Police tried to keep it quiet about their religion . The News item i saw had the Police claiming that the 2 weren’t connected and there is no known motive behind the stabbings.

    Right…..lots of people in all are major cites carry a knife and stab strangers that are non-muslims.
