Somalia: At least five dead in Mogadishu road accident

Published: March 17, 2015

At least five people died and several others injured in a Mogadishu road accident on Tuesday morning after two vehicles collided, witnesses have said.
According to local residents, the accident occurred when a mini-bus carrying passengers collided with a truck along the Mogadishu-Afgoye highway.
‘’ It was a fatal accident, the truck landed on the mini-bus after the collision,’’ said one of the witnesses.
The real cause of the accident is not yet clear, while police investigations are still going on.
Road accidents are common in Somalia, where highways lack safety features like guard rails or reflective paint.
Most of the roads are notoriously dangerous, with passenger vehicles badly maintained and often overloaded so operators can maximise profits.
