Somalia war


Even with robots and bomb disposal suits, explosive ordnance disposal is a dangerous career. It is unlikely the Somalis were using either robots or suits.

Fox News:

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Three bomb disposal experts were killed in a car bomb blast west of Somalia’s capital on Wednesday, police said.

The bomb detonated as the experts were trying to dismantle a car laden with explosives that security forces seized in Wadajir district, Capt. Mohamed Hussein said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast. The Somalia-based al-Shabab extremist group often claims responsibility for such attacks.
