More than 300 people have lost their lives after a twin bomb explosion rocked Somalia's capital city, Mogadishu, on Saturday.
The attack, which is being referred to as the country's "deadliest in a decade", took place outside a hotel in the city's K5 intersection, an area packed with government offices, restaurants and kiosks.
According to Reuters, police said a truck bomb exploded outside a local hotel and only two hours later, "another blast struck the capital's Medina district."
In the wake of the deadly blasts, the country's President, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo, declared three days of national mourning and called on people to donate blood and funds for hundreds of injured victims.
No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
Grief, shock and outrage on social media
News of the horrific attacks continue to circulate online and has led thousands to react.
Some are trying to help the victims and their families through online fundraising campaigns, whilst others are sharing heartbreaking stories and a few are understandably upset over the lack of media coverage.
