Car bomb Explosion kills 1, wounds 3 in Mogadishu
At least one person was confirmed dead and three others were wounded in a car bomb blast in Somali capital, Mogadishu on Monday, police and witnesses said.
A car packed with explosives has exploded outside a mosque in Yaqshid district, just a short distance from Suuq Bacad, the second biggest market in Mogadishu.
Security forces of the federal government of Somalia have cordoned off the scene near the blast site, and reportedly detained the driver of the exploded car who was armed with a pistol.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, which was the latest in string of attacks in the capital over the past few months, as Somalia is heading towards an election.
