Ten killed in suicide bomb attack in Mogadishu
At least ten people including soldiers have been killed Friday evening after a suicide bomber blew himself up at a tea restaurant near Juba junction in Mogadishu's Shibis district. According to witnesses, nine people were wounded in the attack. The area was frequented by soldiers and is near National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) headquarters. In a statement, Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble condemned the attack pointing finger at Al-Qaeda affiliated group Al-Shabaab. ''The horrific and inhuman attack by Al-Shabaab terrorists shows they targeting civilians, it is our duty to co-operate together to fight terrorism and eradicate our object of peace and governance,'' said Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but Al-Shabaab militants have carried out similar attacks in the past. The group fighting to topple the central government was driven out of Mogadishu by AMISOM and Somali National Army (SNA) in 2011 but the group still carries out attacks in the capital.
