Five killed in Alshabaab car bomb near NISA headquarters

At least five people lost their lives and scores others were wounded when a car bomb exploded outside a restaurant in the Somali capital near Intelligence headquarters.

Banadir regional spokesman has told the media that the car that was full of explosive device was parked in front of Bar Baajo restaurant and exploded during busy hour of lunch time.

Abdulfatah Halane dismissed claims that some government soldiers talking lunch at the eating house was the target.

Among those lost their lives were shoe shiner and car cleaner that were at the scene.

The explosion comes days after Somali security forces foiled explosive attacks to be carried out by armed group Alshabab.

Vehicle used to launch mortar that hit near Presidential palace and killed family members including children were seized by Somali police on Friday.
