Islamist militants take responsibility

On Saturday, Oct. 13th, 2018,  al-Shabaab terrorists carried out a twin suicide bombing in the heart of the Somalian city of Baidoa claiming the lives of at least 22 civilians and wounding more than 30 others. The first blast took place at a popular restaurant, with the second coming just minutes later at a nearby hotel. With regional elections coming up, the attacks are seen as an attempt to undermine the relative stability Baidoa has enjoyed in recent years.

Al-Shabaab’s recent activity

Al-Shabaab, which has pledged loyalty to ISIS, staged an offensive beginning in 2008 in which it captured a number of Somalian cities and villages including Baidoa. While suffering a series of defeats at the hands of Ethiopian, Somali, and Kenyan troops aided by American drone strikes, the terrorist group has continued staging occasional incursions and suicide bombings. In 2017, it carried out a twin suicide bombing in Mogadishu, killing more than 500 people.
