At least five dead in a suicide bombing in Somalia’s capital

MOGADISHU, Somalia - A suicide bomber detonated in a cafe in the Somali capital, Mogadishu on Thursday afternoon, leaving five people dead and more others wounded, police said.

Police Col. Abdi Barre has confirmed the attack to Keydmedia English, saying the blast occurred after the bomber walked into the teashop at NISA headquarters and detonated explosives strapped to his waist.

There is no immediate information about other casualties in Today’s explosion in the capital, which becomes the second in the same sit since last month. It happened around the main government offices.

The attack occurred shortly after Somali PM Mohamed Hussein Roble has returned to the city from a 3-day visit to Egypt and the leaders of Southwest and Galmudug touched down at Aden Adde airport.

Attention in recent days turned to Mogadishu as the city is preparing to host a key election dialogue between Roble and the leaders of the Federal States and Benadir governor to discuss Lower House polls.

Security is the main factor in the setback of the country’s struggle to hold universal suffrage after decades of indirect elections starting from 2000 when a transitional government was formed in Djibouti.

Al-Shabaab, an Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group has been battling against the UN-backed government based in Mogadishu for over ten years in an attempt to rule the nation with a strict Sharia law.
