We will remind, on Wednesday in the Somali capital of Mogadishu near the restaurant Pizza House killed at least 20 people in the blast. According to police, it was done by the terrorist group “al-Shabab”, the Somali-based. Members of the group often focused on the loudest parts of Mogadishu, including hotels, military checkpoints and areas near the presidential Palace. They promised to step up attacks after the newly elected government launched a new military offensive against “al-Shabab”.
