At least three people were killed and three others were injured in a suicide car bomb blast in the Somali capital of Mogadishu on Monday, officials and eye witnesses said.
A minibus laden with explosives went off near a military training camp in Wadajir district, said a security official who declined to be identified.
“The suicide bomber and two civilians were killed and three others were injured. The security forces have launched investigations,” he added.
According to witnesses, the victims were passers-by in the explosion that ripped through the gate of a sweet factory opposite to the military base.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the blast, which came after a media worker was seriously injured in a similar attack in Mogadishu on Sunday.
