A truck laden with explosives detonated at a busy checkpoint in Mogadishu on Saturday, killing dozens of people. The number of reported deaths stood at 78 in the aftermath of the attack, but officials expected it to rise as more than 100 people sought treatment for injuries. Many of those killed were students returning to class after the holiday break. Witnesses described bodies and body parts strewn through the street alongside the burned-out frames of vehicles.
