Five men face charges in connection with the October 14 truck bombing at Zoobe junction in Mogadishu that killed more than 512 people.

The suspects appeared before Somali Military court on Monday, but their sentences have been postponed to next Thursday, according to the chief of the 1st-degree tribunal.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack which was the deadliest single day atrocity in Somalia’s history as it claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians.

The Somali Federal government, however, has blamed the militant group for the bombing. Mogadishu has been hit by fatal attacks during 2017, some claimed by Al Shabaab.
