MOGADISHU, Somalia — A large explosion ripped through a busy market here on Sunday, killing at least 30 people
and exposing the grave security challenges that Somalia’s new president faces.
The Shabab have accused Mr. Mohamed of being an apostate
and an American “puppet.” Mr. Mohamed is an American citizen and spent years in the United States, working as a contracting officer for the New York State Department of Transportation in Buffalo.

An unusually large bomb exploded at the center of a busy market in Mogadishu, Somalia, on Sunday, killing at least 30 people and injuring others.
Somali security officials said the bomb had been packed into a truck
that a suicide bomber drove into the Kawo Godey market, near the center of Mogadishu, the capital.
Mr. Mohamed — best known by his nickname, Farmajo, which comes from the Italian word for cheese — was selected
by Somalia’s Parliament this month in an election process widely seen as staggeringly corrupt.
