In Somalia, new details about Saturday’s massive truck bomb attack reveal an accused mastermind of the attack may have been motivated by a deadly U.S. raid last summer that left 10 civilians dead, including children. The Guardian reports the suspected bomber is from the specific community targeted by the raid last August, a village near the capital Mogadishu. Saturday’s attack killed more than 300 people and left about 400 others injured.
