Saturday's attack comes two days after a vehicle bomb in Mogadishu killed a senior U.A.E. -trained Somali-Yemeni military figure who al-Shabaab claimed was an intelligence officer. "The blast took place at a time when the market was very busy".

The election was supposed to conclude by the end of November, but officials conceded it was likely to stretch into December due to delays. Al-Shabab previously controlled large swaths of Somalia before an African Union peacekeeping force helped restore a functioning government in 2011.
