Somalia says blind female suicide bomber killed Mogadishu mayor
[Jpost] The jacket wallah who killed the mayor of Mogadishu and six other people last month was a blind, female employee of the municipal government who was assisted by a fellow worker, Somalia's internal security ministry said on Friday.

The al Qaeda-linked Islamist krazed killer group al-Shabaab
...... al-Qaeda's tentacle in East Africa...
, which aims to topple Somalia’s U.N.-backed government, grabbed credit for the July 24 attack in the Somali capital.

Mayor Abdirahman Omar Osman, who previously served for a spell as a Labour Party councilor in London, died of his wounds a week later in Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
where he was hospitalized.

"Preliminary findings show a female who worked in the local government blew herself up herself with the help of another female, who... also worked at the local government," the security ministry said in a statement carried on the state news agency.

It was al-Shabaab's first known use of a disabled person as a suicide bomber and the statement suggested the bomber used her blindness to get past security and reach the mayor's offices.

The whereabouts of the blind woman's co-worker, who the ministry said was also a woman and helped her carry out the attack, was not known.

A month before the bombing, the two women took leaves of absence from work, the ministry statement said, and visited an area of Somalia controlled by al-Shabaab.

"The female bomber was disabled (blind). She misused the opportunity and acted with enmity against the bosses and the people she worked with," the ministry statement said.

Osman fled as a refugee to Britannia after civil war erupted in Somalia in 1991, earned a master's degree, became a naturalized citizen and worked in the housing department in the London borough of Ealing.

He subsequently returned to Somalia to help rebuild his war-torn, homeland in the Horn of Africa.

#1 Moral of the story

If you have successfully exited a shithole country, take your chances in a better place, adopting their culture and forget your shithole roots and associated hubris. Say 'F U' to that old village, the rivers, the desert mounds. Curb your longing and shithole sickness for a few years, and it shall pass.
