MOGADISHU Suicide bombers killed at least 13 people at the gates of the African Union's main peacekeeping base in the Somali capital on Tuesday, police said, in an attack claimed by the Islamist militants of al Shabaab. The force of the bombings shattered windows at Mogadishu's nearby airport, showered arriving passengers with glass and forced the suspension of flights, police and witnesses said. The United States condemned the attack on the AMISOM peacekeeping force's base, the latest by the militant group that wants to topple Somalia's western-backed government and rule the Horn of Africa country according to sharia law #Africa #Somalia #Security #united #number #mostly-security
