HeadlineJun 16, 2021

In Somalia, at least 15 people were killed in a suicide bombing in the capital Mogadishu. The attack reportedly targeted recruits at a Somali army training camp. At least 20 others were wounded. Al-Shabab later claimed responsibility for the attack. This comes as the Pentagon is working on a proposal to deploy dozens of Special Forces trainers to Somalia to help local officials combat al-Shabab. In January, former President Trump withdrew some 700 troops from Somalia.
