Somali suicide bomber wounds several outside police post
Friday, March 22, 2013
MOGADISHU (AFP) - A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a police post in the Somali capital's main market Thursday, wounding several people, police said.
The blast was the latest in war-ravaged Mogadishu, where Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgents have launched a series of guerrilla-style attacks since pulling out of fixed positions there in 2011.
"A suicide bomber tried to enter a police post, but he was stopped and he blew himself up.... He died but four other people including a woman were wounded," said police official Abdi Mohamed.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast in Bakara market, once a stronghold of the Shebab but which in recent months has sprung back to life as the city's economic heart.
