The Somali capital Mogadishu and neighbouring areas were deeply shaken by a string of bomb car attacks on Friday, 9 November 2018, near a well-known hotel and the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) police headquarters. The bombings killed and wounded dozens of people, mostly civilians, in this latest episode in the long train of terrorist attacks since the collapse of the Somali state in 1991 and the spread, in Somalia, of extremist takfiri groups affiliated with international terrorist organisations such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS) group.

Harakat Al-Shabab Al-Mujahideen claimed responsibility for the attack. Al-Shabab, as it is commonly known, is one of the groups that splintered off the Islamic Union, or Al-Ittihad Al-Islamiya (AIAI), in the late 1990s.

In 2008 and 2009, the US and the UN designated Al-Shabab as a terrorist organisation with close ties to Al-Qaeda. Civil warfare, the collapse of institutionalised government and, above all, the lack of viable military and security establishments in Somalia generated a fertile environment for jihadist groups that exploited the rampant poverty and famine in order to spread their influence through the country. Al-Shabab, a Salafi movement that aims to create a state ruled by a strict interpretation of Sharia Law, established links with Al-Qaeda through connections with some leaders of Al-Qaeda cells in eastern Africa as well as through the returnees from Afghanistan. The organisation has between 7,000 to 9,000 members including native Somalis and foreigners, primarily from Arab and African countries, as well as from Pakistan.
