MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) – The Latest on deadly bombing in Somalia’s capital (all times local):
A 50-year-old man who lived in Minnesota is among the more than 300 people killed in a powerful bomb blast in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Ahmed AbdiKarin Eyow died in Saturday’s explosion.
The executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations told a news conference Sunday that Eyow was in his hotel room when the bomb went off.
Hussein says many other Somalis in the Minneapolis area are still trying to find out if family members survived the attack.
