Al-Shabaab has taken responsibility for a car bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital, that killed at least five people earlier today. The attack took place shortly after Somali authorities executed a journalist with ties to the extremist group.
“It was a sad incident,” said Abidqadir Mohammed, the district’s commissioner.
The car bomb detonated during lunchtime, outside a packed restaurant behind the municipal government headquarters in the Hamarwenye district.
