Somalia, nuovo attacco di al-Shabab

Triste ultim’ora dalla Somalia: nella notte i militanti del gruppo islamista al-Shabab hanno preso di mira una popolare pizzeria della capitale Mogadiscio, prendendo in ostaggio gli avventori. Sono intervenute le forze speciali: ma nei violenti scontri che ne sono seguiti – i testimoni parlano anche dell’esplosione di un’auto bomba – , e che sono finiti solo questa mattina, sono rimasti uccisi anche diversi civili. Anche da questo Paese, ormai da decenni teatro di instabilità, continua quindi a levarsi il grido di una popolazione che chiede la pace: emblematica in questo senso l’immagine di una madre che piange la figlia, rimasta uccisa negli scontri.
