Once again the city of Mogadishu is living through the aftermath of an attack.
And once again those responsible are Al Shabaab fighters.
The armed group has been battling Somalis government for 12 years.
It has launched more than half a dozen attacks this year alone.
I was close to where the explosion happened.
The car rammed through the checkpoint barrier into the Ministry building, then it exploded.
There was smoke everywhere.
Many people died in there.
But I wasn’t able to count them.
Al Shabab is fighting to overthrow the government and was pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011.
But it continues to target both government sites and civilians.
I saw 10 bodies with my own eyes and eight wounded.
The car exploded inside the Ministry building.
There was a lot of confusion, screaming and lots of gunfire.
Three attackers entered the Ministry of Interior following the explosion and exchanged gunfire with security forces inside.
Somalis government says all three have been killed.
But while those involved in this attack may have been killed, Al Shabab remains a significant threat to millions of Somalis and the future of their country stability.
