索马里发生自杀炸弹袭击数人丧生 Several Dead in Apparent Terrorist Attack in Somalia Capital

一名自杀炸弹杀手星期四在索马里首都摩加迪沙一个主要警察培训设施引爆了身上的炸弹,炸死若干人。

炸弹袭击发生时,警察正在卡西耶警察总校练习游行队列。索马里官员说,袭击者装扮成警察混进了警察学校。

路透社说,13人在爆炸中丧生,但是索马里官员尚未提供确切的伤亡数字。路透社说,索马里青年党宣称为星期四的袭击事件负责。

青年党在2011年之前一直控制着摩加迪沙,后来被非洲联盟部队和索马里保安部队从摩加迪沙赶走。青年党一直在索马里试图推翻政府,建立一个严格执行伊斯兰教义的国家,对政府、军队以及平民目标频频发动炸弹袭击。

Several people are dead after a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the main police training facility in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, Thursday.

The attack happened as police were rehearsing a parade at General Kahiye Police Academy. Officials say the attacker entered the facility disguised as a policeman.

Reuters news agency says 13 people were killed in the bombing, but officials have yet to give an exact number of casualties. It says the militant Islamist group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack.

Al-Shabab controlled Mogadishu until 2011, when it was driven out by African Union peacekeepers and Somali security forces. The group has been active in Somalia trying to overthrow the government and install a strict form of Islam. It has deployed bomb attacks against government, military and civilian targets.
