The attack is the second carried out by a suicide bomber in Mogadishu. Last Sunday, government spokesman Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimuu was wounded in a similar blast.
Mohamed Abdi Ali "Mohamed Dheere" and Abdirahman Abdi Idow "Khaire", both sustained wounds after they were targeted with IED while heading to their houses walking on foot.
The attack becomes the second in two days and comes amid a political crisis in the country between the PM and the outgoing president Farmajo.
An official statement from the Al-Shabaab said that at least seven soldiers were killed in the blast that targeted the allied forces from Galmudug and Somali national army [SNA] while 4 vehicles were burnt.
The city has been relatively calm since the presidential election on May 15 with no security incidents reported. The security experts say whenever Al-Shabaab remains silent, it is orchestrating an attack.
The site of the deadly blast is a haven for Al-Shabaab, the Al-Qaeda-linked militant group which been fighting the topple of the western-backed Somali government based in Mogadishu for more than a decade.
There was no claim of responsibility for the attack which comes amid fears that Al-Shabaab could retake the city from Somali and AU troops' control.
