Nine Killed in Bomb Attack on U.N. Vehicle in Somalia

Two Kenyans and seven Somalis were killed in a bomb attack on a vehicle carrying workers to the United Nations compound in Garowe in the Somali region of Puntland on Monday. Authorities suspect Islamist al Shabaab militants of carrying out the bombing in the northeastern city.
Images posted on social media show a blood-spattered white minivan, its windows shattered and the vehicle roof blown off by the blast. Al Shabaab has staged several attacks against U.N. officials in Somalia in recent years, most often in the capital Mogadishu, where the U.N has been helping a Western-backed government rebuild the country after more than 20 years of war.
