MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — Ten victims of October 14 truck bomb blast who were treated in Turkey will be returning to Mogadishu on Tuesday, Somali government confirmed.
Thirty-five people wounded in the truck bombing, including children were last month transferred to Turkey for medical treatment following the Oct. 14 attack that killed over 350 people and injured more than 500 others in Mogadishu.
The Minister of Information, Abdirahman Yariisow said in his Twitter post said that the ten will be arriving in Mogadishu after they were treated well in Turkey.
"Ten of the seriously injured people have recovered and are in stable condition now. The minister of Health of Turkey personally visited them as they returning to Mogadishu,” said Yariisow.
Among the returnees is Abdikadir Mohamud Abdulle, a freelance reporter working with VOA Somali service, who sustained injuries from the bombing and lost his friend and cameraman Ali Salad to the blast.
Twenty-five others are undergoing treatment in Turkey.
Turkey, Somalia’s close ally swiftly responded in 48 hours to the deadliest truck bombing in the capital by sending Turkish Air Ambulance to pick up the wounded Somalis to Turkey for free medical treatment.
Ankara has invested heavily in Somalia in past five years as it also built Turkish biggest overseas military base in Mogadishu which will training to over 10,000 Somali soldiers.
