Car Bomb Blast Kills Security Official In Mogadishu

A senior Somali police officer was killed in a car bomb explosion in Mogadishu, witnesses said, the latest in a series of attacks by the Al-Qaeda-linked Al shabaab in the capital.

The incident took place at Sey Piano junction
after an explosive device fitted into a police vehicle that he was travelling
in exploded in the area early on Tuesday morning.

The officer, Hassan Dheere died on the spot
following the blast resulted from the bomb concealed under his car’s seat,
according to an eyewitness who spoke to Radio Shabelle.

In the aftermath of the incident, Somali security
forces condoned off the scene and launched an investigation into the blast. No
arrest was reported.

No group has yet claimed the responsibility for
today’s car bombing in Mogadishu, but, Al-Shabaab often carries out regular
attacks against Somali government and the AU forces.
