MOGADISHU, Somalia Seven Al Qaeda-linked militants on a suicide mission attacked the U.N. compound Wednesday with a truck bomb and then poured inside, killing at least 13 people before dying in the assault.
At least three foreigners were slain during the raid in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, where the United Nations expanded its presence this year, about 18 months after Islamic insurgents were pushed from the seaside city.
The militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the U.N. "a merchant of death."

Never thought I'd agree with Al Shabaab on something.
These would be the same ‘type’ of extremists that are obama’s people, right?
I don’t know about the rest of you but I, for one, am certainly glad the war on terror is over and done with.
Something does not appear to be the truth within this report. The report states the perps stated the un is an agent of death. Sounds and reads like AP is trying to generate support and empathy for these perps.
Was Al Qaeda in Somalia using the weapons that Ambassador Stevens was killed for dealing in Libya?
Were they using any of the weapons that 0bama is shipping into Syria?
Were the terrorists using any of the guns that Attorney General Holder illegally ran to Mexican drug cartels?
I'd actually have supported a new stadium for the Jets if it meant bulldozing this monstrosity:
I know! Obama is so swell, he has ended it all! And now we are loved and respected the world over! Smartest prezzie evah! /omg faint!
This is impossible because
1) The War on Terror is over, 0bama said so
2) Al Qaeda is defeated, 0bama said so
3) “Terrorism” must be treated as a Law Enforcement issue, so the police in Somalia can take care of this issue
4) PRISM caught these people anyway before they attacked
5) We’re probably allied with Al Qaeda in Somalia, like we are in Syria, with the Taliban in Afghanistan against the government, and in Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood against Israel.
So, this attack, is therefore totally impossible.
If it did happen and we didn’t arrest them, then we must cheer our allies, Al Qaeda for their success.
Totally correct Uncle Miltie. This maybe is what AP wants everyone in the civilized world to do.
Who needs a circus in town when you have this?
UN idiots get machine-gunned.
Then Al-Shahab myrmidons DIE.
Guilding the Lilly:
add beer, BBQ, strippers, and ice-cream.
There now. Good little muslims. The UN likes you all. Honest.
In the meantime..the US is trying to move our diplomats back into Somalia.
I wonder if they will get full time aircover and a back up by carrier?
No way with this group in charge.
I thought terrorism was over?
Odd, I didn’t see this of ABCNNBCBS evening news.........
