Four dead, 11 wounded in Mogadishu bombing
Mogadishu: At least four soldiers were killed and 11 people wounded on Friday in an explosion in the Somali capital Mogadishu, police and witnesses said.
The roadside bomb went off outside a tea shop where soldiers were relaxing, a police official said, blaming the attack on Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab militants.
"Four soldiers were killed and eleven others including civilians were injured," police officer Mohamed Duale said.
"Some of the wounded are in a serious condition and have been taken to hospital," he said.
"It looks like Al-Shebab but we are still investigating," he added.
An eyewitness, Bare Moalim, said several women were among those hurt.
"I saw many, many people who were injured being collected. There was human flesh strewn around the area," he said.
"Some of the injured may not live because of the severe wounds," he added.
