Mogadishu Bombing

Mr PEARSON (Essendon)  — Today Somalia is crying as a result of the terrorist bomb blasts that ripped through Mogadishu on Saturday, which have killed more than 300 people and injured hundreds more. Two bomb blasts ripped through Mogadishu in the early hours on Saturday, and they have had a profound impact both for the people of Somalia but also for the very large Somali-Australian community. My thoughts go out to those Australian Somalis who are living in my community and in our nation, as well as to Somalia.
