Almost 300 people were killed when a powerful bomb blast ripped through Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital, on Saturday.

The attack marked the deadliest assault the country has ever witnessed.

Somalia has entered a three-day national mourning period for the victims, with around 300 more people also injured in the blast.

Dozens are missing, hospitals are running out of blood and anger is growing.

But social media users have asked: Where is the collective outrage?

The attack in Somalia came little more than one week after a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, but many noted a quieter response to events in Mogadishu.

“The world is unfair, Social media can attest to that. 276 died in Somalia and we aren’t doing the same thing we did when it was Las Vegas,” tweeted Eke van Victor.
