Mogadishu restricts truck movements
authorities imposed a daytime ban yesterday on the movement of large trucks and road tankers inside the capital Mogadishu in an attempt to improve security following a wave of devastating attacks by militants.
The move followed twin truck bombings on October 15 that killed more than 350 people in the city, in the deadliest attack in the history of the Horn of Africa nation.
Though the militant group Al Shabaab did not claim responsibility for that attack, the method is one it has often used. (Reuters)
