Somalia’s government blamed the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab extremist group for “unspeakable horror” of truck bomb blast as rescue workers search for survivors trapped under the rubble of the largely destroyed Safari Hotel.

The most powerful bomb blast ever witnessed in Somalia’s capital killed at least 231 people with more than 275 injured, a senator said Sunday, making it the deadliest single attack in this Horn of Africa nation. The toll could continue to rise.

Abshir Abdi Ahmed cited doctors at overwhelmed hospitals he visited in Mogadishu a day after a truck bomb targeted a crowded street near key government ministries. Many of the bodies in mortuaries had not yet been identified, he said.
