Seven Killed In Car Bombing Attack In Mogadishu

From Xinhuanet:
At least seven people were killed and 10 others injured on Thursday evening in a car bomb explosion in a busy market in Mogadishu, officials have confirmed.

Mogadishu city spokesman Abditifitah Halane told reporters the car blew up next to a public service vehicle in Hamarweyne market.

"Seven people have been killed in the attack. The victims were in a public vehicle when the explosion hit their vehicle killing them," said Halane.

No group has claimed responsibility for the latest attack in the Horn of Africa nation.

However, the Al-Qaeda allied militant group, Al-Shabaab, is usually behind such attacks.

The Al-Shabaab insurgents were pushed out the capital Mogadishu by African Union peacekeeping forces (AMISOM) in 2011 but still mount daily attacks on government and AMISOM bases including public places.
