Al-Shabaab attack and kill civilians at out patient clinic
Mogadishu, Somalia- In yet another gross violation of Islamic teachings, al-Shabaab militias in Mogadishu attacked a hospital killing several Somali civilian patients who were standing in line to receive medical care.
The mortar attack happened at an outpatient clinic run by the Ugandan peacekeepers. One Ugandan soldier was killed in the attack.
Although al-Shabaab claims that it is fighting for the cause of Islam, their action is a major transgression against the Islamic religion because Islam prohibits military attacks against civilians and hospitals.
