mogadishu - Thousands of Somalis have said goodbye to the victims of the bloody attacks last weekend. They gathered in Mogadishu to pray for the over three hundred dead.
After the bomb attacks, authorities said that about half of the bodies could no longer be identified. Because many victims were buried quickly, Somalis decided to symbolize a ceremony six days later. 'Because we have seen few bodies, it is decided to hold the funeral meeting at the place of the explosion,' said a local religious leader, Abdi Hayi.
Residents of the capital are fearing more violence for the time being. A main road quickly ran out when the police checked a vegetable box. Omstanders feared a new bombing and took the legs. 'I immediately closed the store and ran away,' said a local entrepreneur. 'We still feel a lot of fear. '
