Read Time:30 Second

MOGADISHU, Somalia — A suicide car bomb explosion has rocked Somali capital Mogadishu on Thursday, amid rising attacks by Al Qaeda linked Al Shabaab.

The explosion went off outside Filsan Restaurant between Hotel Weheliye and Dabka junction in Mogadishu.

The blast came from the direction of a busy road in Mogadishu.

The attack comes after Al-Shabaab Islamist group last Saturday attacked complex housing government ministries, killing at least 11 people.

The assault was a sign of the insurgency’s continued ability to strike at the heart of Somalia’s government, despite years of foreign military support for Mogadishu.
