SOMALIA BOMBINGS

Al-Qaida-linked militants are threatening attacks that will "increase day by day" after a bomb in Somalia's capital killed 70 people.
Al-Shabab spokesman Ali Mohamed Rage said the suicide bomber behind Tuesday's attack was Bashar Abdullahi Nur and congratulated him for dealing a "devastating blow."
A truck loaded with drums of fuel exploded Tuesday at the gate of building housing several government ministries in a busy street in the war-ravaged capital. It was the deadliest single bombing carried out by al-Shabab in Somalia since their insurgency began.
Rage promised more attacks, saying they will be "back-to-back" and will "increase day by day." Most of the group's fighters had left the capital in August following an offensive by African Union forces.
