Mogadishu (Somalia): A police officer on Tuesday said a suicide car bomber has detonated at a district headquarters in Somalia’s capital, killing at least fifteen people.
Captain Mohamed Hussein said the bomber posing as a milk delivery van sneaked into the Wadajir district headquarters in Mogadishu.
Hussein said most of the dead are civilians. The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group has claimed responsibility for the attack via its Shahada News Agency, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.
The blast comes less than a week after al-Shabab gunmen carried out an overnight siege on a popular restaurant in the Somali capital, killing at least 31 people....
