Apologies if I have missed another thread. Apparently they expect the death toll to rise above 300.

I have no words really.

I can't stop thinking about it; it's too horrible and sad to fully comprehend.

I think this is the biggest terrorist attack since July 2016?

MGKROCKS Sun 15-Oct-17 21:27:26

Where is this news...I just looked on line,can't find it

CandyMelts Sun 15-Oct-17 21:28:10

It's on BBC main page MGK
Horrific sad

so awful

MrsKCastle Sun 15-Oct-17 21:32:35

It's horrifying. What gets me is that it isn't even the lead story, at least not on the BBC. If this was somewhere in the developed world, everyone would be changing their FB pictures and posting in solidarity. But it seems to be almost... I don't know... accepted?

I can't imagine what they must be going through.

MGKROCKS Sun 15-Oct-17 21:33:08

Was on daily mail.james corden top story ,bloody hell..what do they gain by doing this...I can't comprehend anyone choosing to set of a bomb that they know will kill and maim ..it's senseless..every single atrocitiy just erodes my belief in God just a little more .those poor people

Oh god, has the toll risen? I saw it earlier and it was bad enough.

MGKROCKS Sun 15-Oct-17 21:35:28

It's not even on daily mail on line...why?

VivaLeBeaver Sun 15-Oct-17 21:38:55

Awful. People,worry about terrorists from the Middle East but Africa seems to have a growing problem.

StealthPolarBear Sun 15-Oct-17 21:39:21

Perking the report I read said they expected the death toll to be above 300.i don't know how reliable that is. Plus of course hundreds (presumably) maimed

TheSecondOfHerName Sun 15-Oct-17 21:39:58

It does seem to be under-reported in the UK. And fewer messages of sympathy and solidarity on social media than I usually see. Is it because of the geographical distance? Because it's a less developed country? Because the victims aren't white? Or because the victims are Muslim? I'm hoping it's just because people haven't yet heard about it.

Just terrible sad. Those poor people.

Hassled Sun 15-Oct-17 21:43:24

Bloody hell - how awful. Beyond awful.

I've just spent a while scrolling through FB - I follow a lot of news sites. I saw nothing about this at all.

MGKROCKS Sun 15-Oct-17 21:44:53

Tiny article on BBC news page,.nothing yet on daily mail....

RandomMess Sun 15-Oct-17 21:51:58

Nothing on ITV headlines...how poor is that.

Horrific event.

LaurieFairyCake Sun 15-Oct-17 22:12:08

Less geo political consequences as it’s not ISIS sad

And it’s not white people sad

And it’s a failed state (the terrorists are fighting the government) sad

So that’s why it’s underreported flowers

RoseAndRose Sun 15-Oct-17 22:14:09

Made it on to the BBC news at 22:13

Danglingmod Sun 15-Oct-17 22:16:14

It was a big headline on the Independent website earlier on. My fb has nothing on it at all.

Absolutely horrific.

TheSecondOfHerName Sun 15-Oct-17 22:17:38

Laurie was it al-Shabaab?

LevelHeading Sun 15-Oct-17 22:18:18

Just awful. I didn't know as it wasn't showing as a top story.
