More Bodies Found As Somalia Bombing Toll Climbs

Emergency workers in central Somalia dug through rubble to recover more bodies yesterday after a truck bombing killed over a dozen people and brought buildings crashing down.

A suicide bomber drove a truck loaded with explosives towards a security checkpoint in the town of Beledweyne on Saturday, resulting in an explosion that left scores trapped.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing.
