JUST SAD! 73 Persons Killed In Car Bombing In Mogadishu

Seventy-three people died in a car bombing on Saturday morning in the Somali capital Mogadishu. The head of the Medina hospital, Mohamed Yusuf, confirmed the death toll to dpa. Some 54 injured victims were brought to the hospital for treatment, he said. Eyewitnesses spoke of a scene of devastation after a truck at a checkpoint exploded in a busy area of the city. Although there has been no claim of responsibility so far, Al-Shabab extremists in Somalia remain “a potent threat” to regional peace. UN experts say that Al-Shabab are now manufacturing home-made explosives, expanding their revenue sources and infiltrating government institutions. After three decades of civil war, extremist attacks and famine, Somalia established a functioning transitional government in 2012 and has since been working to rebuild stability. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that the country must still tackle violent extremism, terrorism, armed conflict, political instability and corruption.

IT WILL HAPPEN! Pep Guardiola Set To Break Jose Mourinho’s Premier League Record

Manchester City head coach, Pep Guardiola, is on track to set another Premier League record, with one of Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho’s achievements in his sights. Having become the first manager to win the English domestic treble with Man City last season, Guardiola is on the verge to break the record for least amount of matches required to get 100 Premier League wins tonight if his team beat Wolves at Molineux, according to Daily Mail. Mourinho currently holds that record from his time at Chelsea, with his first 100 wins coming in only 142 league matches. But Guardiola looks set to surpass that mark as he currently has 99 wins from 132 league games. Even if Man City did not win at Wolves on Thursday night, Guardiola will have another eight matches in which to break Mourinho’s record. Guardiola will also eclipse the games it took to reach 100 wins for Jurgen Klopp (159), Sir Alex Ferguson (162), Arsene Wenger (179), Rafael Benitez (181) and Claudio Ranieri (187).
