    Thursday's mass murder at the police academy in Somalia's capital Mogadishu left victims and injuries.

    On December 14, a suicide bomber disguised as a policeman blew himself up inside a police training camp (General Kahiye Police Training Academy) in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu during a police parade.

    “So far 15 have died and 17 others were injured,”  Reuters reported, citing a police officer. 

    Earlier, it was reported that 13 were killed and 15 had been injured.

    The militant Islamist group Al-Shabaab operates in war-torn Somalia, and has strong ties to al-Qaeda. Al-Shabaab carries out frequent bombings against the Somalia central government and has complicated the UN's humanitarian activities in Mogadishu and other towns.
