Mogadishu Hit By Deadly Car Bomb

At least eight people have been killed a massive car bomb in the centre of Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, police have said.

According to international media, a loud explosion was heard near the National Theatre.

Security has improved in Mogadishu over the past year following the withdrawal of the al-Qaeda linked al-Shabab group.

A new Somali government was formed last year tasked with ending instability.

“We’ve counted at least eight dead so far. It was a car bomb attack near the National Theatre,” said police official Mohamed Duale, AFP news agency reports

A witness, Hassan Salad, said the dead included passengers in a minibus that was hit by the blast, AFP reports.

“This is a disaster, there is smoke and dead bodies thrown all around,” he is quoted as saying.

No group has said it carried out the attack.
