Car Bomb Leaves Six Dead

From Independent:
Six people have been killed and at least 20 others wounded in a car bomb blast near a police station in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, police said.

The blast near Waberi police station along the busy Maka al Mukarramah road may have been a suicide bomber, Captain Mohamed Hussein told The Associated Press.

The blast occurred amid a traffic jam while soldiers were searching cars at a nearby intersection.

A Reuters reporter at the scene of the blast counted four bodies lying on the ground. Photographs taken by Reuters showed three destroyed cars on the road, with two still burning.

Most of the victims were civilians. The exact target of the blast remains unclear.
