The coastal city of Boosaaso in Somalia’s northeast Bari province has witnessed relative calm and peace for a number of years, which in itself is rare in a country synonymous with decades of armed conflict and anarchy. However, in recent weeks the once-peaceful coastal city of Boosaaso has suffered a wave of terror attacks at an unprecedented scale not seen in the city’s history, until now.

The city of Boosaaso has seen three deadly bombings in the span of 12 days between the dates of February 9th and February 21st, with two out of these three bombings occurring within a 48 hour period.
