More than 300 people were killed in the truck bombing, and the death toll is predicted to continue rising as many people haven’t been found.

Saturday's blast occurred at a junction in Hodan, a bustling commercial district of the capital Mogadishu which has many shops, hotels and businesses. Hundreds of people had been in the area at the time of the blast.

The country declared three days of national mourning following the attack./.
