(Vice Impact) – On Saturday, October 14, 2017, a large truck filled with 350 kg of homemade and military-grade explosives drove into the Hodan District of Mogadishu and detonated at a busy crossroad near the Safari Hotel. A fuel tanker parked nearby caused a massive fireball. 512 people lost their lives and 316 were injured. The organization behind the deadly blast: al-Shabaab. While the group has lost much of the territory it controlled in Somalia over the last few years, it has continued to terrorize local Somalis. The attack was just one of 75 this year, which have killed 888 people alone in Somalia.
