On the morning of 11 May 2022, a suicide bombing occurred at a security checkpoint near Aden Adde International Airport (HCMM/MGQ) in the capital Mogadishu. The bombing targeted vehicles crossing the checkpoint as presidential candidates were en route to the airport area to address members of the parliament, which is scheduled to elect Somalia’s new president on 15 May. Four people were killed in the blast, including two soldiers, and at least eight others were wounded. The al-Shabab militant group claimed responsibility for the attack.
