Car bomb rips through Mogadishu restaurant

1 October 2016 14:18


A car bomb rams into a restaurant in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, with no immediate report on possible casualties, police say.   

Police said the car bomb rammed into Blue Sky restaurant on Saturday, adding it was too early to confirm if there were casualties.

One witness, quoted by Reuters news agency, said he had seen at least three dead.

Residents said the restaurant was frequented by members of the national security forces.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab has launched many similar attacks in Mogadishu in the past.
