A truck filled with explosives blew up in Mogadishu, Somalia, on Saturday reportedly killing at least 90 people and wounding dozens more in the Somali capital. An international organization, which did not wish to be named, reported the death toll was more than 90. The blast was the latest deadly event in the country this year, and while the Al Qaeda-linked Islamist group al Shabaab regularly carries out the attacks, no terrorist organization immediately claimed responsibility for Saturday's bombing. Somali Prime Minister Hassan Khayre said he appointed a national committee to respond to the victims and assist in the evacuation of those seeking medical care abroad.
