"The driver who died in the car bomb was Mohamed Abdinur Garweyne, he was a former trade minister and a lawmaker," said Mohamed Dhere, another lawmaker.

"The police could not identify his body initially because it was so badly burned in the explosion," he added.

Police Colonel Ali Mohamed confirmed the "driver of the car was killed and six civilians walking nearby were injured, some of them seriously."

Some witnesses said the explosion could have been a bomb attached beneath the driver
