Suicide bomber kills 2 at Turkish military base in Somalia

Published Tue Jun 23 2020 11:01:46 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Police say a suicide bomber has detonated inside a Turkish military training base in Somalia’s capital and killed two people. It's the first time the Turkish base in Mogadishu, Turkey’s largest overseas military base, has been attacked by the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group. The Somalia-based group quickly claimed responsibility for the attack. The Turkish Defense Ministry says no Turkish personnel were hurt and there was no damage to the barracks. Turkey operates one of a number of foreign military training operations in the Horn of Africa nation long destabilized by conflict.
