Six dead in suicide explosion in Somali capital

MOGADISHU – At least six people were killed in a bombing of a local government office building in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, officials say.

The balst happened on Sunday after suicide bomber blew himself up Howlwadag district headquarters in Mogadishu, policeman said.

Three soldiers were also killed in the attack while trying to stop the bomber from speeding through a checkpoint, according to Mahad Hassan, a policeman.

The blast also blew off the roof of a mosque and damaged homes nearby.

The armed group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack, which shattered a period of calm in the seaside capital.

The al-Qaeda-linked group is fighting to overthrow the UN-backed government in Mogadishu.
