Somalia says blind female suicide bomber killed Mogadishu mayor
Abdi Sheikh

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - The suicide bomber who killed the mayor of Mogadishu and six other people last month was a blind, female employee of the municipal government who was assisted by a fellow worker, Somalia’s internal security ministry said on Friday.

The al Qaeda-linked Islamist militant group al Shabaab, which aims to topple Somalia’s U.N.-backed government, claimed responsibility for the July 24 attack in the Somali capital.

Mayor Abdirahman Omar Osman, who previously served for a spell as a Labour Party councillor in London, died of his wounds a week later in Qatar where he was hospitalized.

They were the 1st things that went through her mind.
