Three confirmed dead in a bomb blast in Somalia

There was a bomb blast in the early hours of  today in Mogadishu, the Somalia capital. According to the police, they said a car bomb rammed into a cafe in , near the compounds housing the security and sports ministries, killing three.

“A suicide car bomb hit a small restaurant near the sports and youth ministry. So far we have confirmed three civilians died,” Nur Aden, a police officer, told Reuters.

The cause of the blast was still unclear, he said.

In the past, al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab militants have taken responsibility for blasts and gun attacks in the capital and elsewhere in Somalia.
