Car bomb kills 8 in Somalia

AFP, Mogadishu

A car bomb exploded near the Somalia parliament Saturday, killing eight people, emergency workers said, hours after militia executed nine civilians from a clan with suspected links to the Islamist Al-Shabaab.

“We have confirmed eight people killed and 16 others wounded in the blast,” the private Aamin Ambulance service said. A second blast on a key road leading to the airport of the Somalia capital Mogadishu did not cause any casualties.

The Al-Shabaab group claimed responsibility for the attacks saying “they were targeting two checkpoints, one of them along the airport road and (the other) along the road that leads to house of legislators.”

Abdulahi Mire, who witnessed the explosion near the parliament building said; “I saw four dead bodies and four others wounded in the blast.” Police sealed off the road and ambulances rushed to the scene, he added.

Local shopkeeper Naimo Ali said the blast was “huge” and destroyed a part of her shop.
