Islamic fundamentalist group Al-Shabaab killed at least four people and injured more than a dozen with a suicide car bomb in a government complex on Saturday morning, according to Reuters. An ensuing gun battle prevented first responders from reaching injured people trapped inside. Witnesses reported a large explosion and fire ball. Al-Shabaab is working to establish rule and implement its strict version of Sharia law in Somalia. “Al Shabaab stormed the building where two ministries including the ministry of labor work. So far we know 4 people are dead but (the) death toll is sure to rise,” Major Abdullahi Nur told Reuters. The death toll could rise.
