A suicide car bomb targeting a government convoy exploded at a busy junction in Somalia’s capital on Saturday, killing at least eight people, an eyewitness told Reuters.
The convoy was carrying senior police official Farhan Qarole, who survived the attack, the government news agency reported.
Abdiasis Abu Musab, military operations spokesperson for the al-Qaeda-linked militant group al-Shabaab, told Reuters it was responsible for Saturday’s attack. The group, which wants to overthrow the government and impose its strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law, frequently carries out such bombings.
Hassan Sayid Ali, a driver of a three-wheeled motorised vehicle taxi told Reuters he saw eight bodies, including a woman, at the scene of the blast at Banadir junction in Mogadishu.
