Mortar attack kills 4 peacekeepers

Four Ugandan peacekeepers have died following Somali Islamist group al-Shabab mortaring the presidential palace.

AN EXPLOSION in the Somali capital of Mogadishu has killed 11 people. Most of the dead are Islamists militants, who are thought to have died when a car bomb malfunctioned, going off prematurely. Over 21,000 Somalis have been killed since an insurgency against the western-backed government began in 2007.

THE IRISHWOMAN who died in the Ugandan blast on Sunday has been named as Marie Smith from Dublin, a 51-year-old lay missionary who had worked for over 30 years in Africa. Somali Islamists are being blamed for the attacks.
