President Trump’s ban has certainly caused much controversy recently in the media and the political world.
A suicide bomber in Somalia — one of the countries identified by Trump’s immigration ban — recently killed 39 in a busy market only days after the country elected a new president.
The car was driven by a suicide bomber, said Ahmed Abdulle Afrax, the mayor of Wadajir district where the bombing happened.
“We carried 39 dead bodies and there were many others injured,” Dr. Abdikadir Abdirahman, director of the Aamin Ambulance Service, told Reuters.
Madina Hospital took in 47 injured people, Dr. Mohamed Yusuf, the manager, said.
Al-Shabab, the Islamic terrorism group in the region, has not yet claimed responsibility for the deadly attack, but the group has been vocally opposed to the new Somali president calling him “evil-minded”.
