7 Killed As Suicide Bomb Explodes In Somalia

There was a bomb explosion in the Somali capital today.

MOGADISHU: Suicide bombers killed at least seven people in an attack on the African Union’s main peacekeeping base in Mogadishu, Somalia on Tuesday, police said.

Al Shabaab, the Islamist militant group that is trying to topple the Western-backed Somali government, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it had killed more than 12 people

“AU forces sealed the area. There were many Somalis outside the gate and there were AU forces at the gate – we have not yet confirmed the casualty figure,” police officer Major Nur Osman told Reuters.
