Suicide bomber kills at least 9 in central Somalia

Mogadishu, Mar 31: A Somali police official says a suicide bombing in central Somalia has killed at least nine people and wounded 10 others.

Ali Aden said a suicide bomber blew himself up among a group of people at a cafe near a hotel in Galkayo town today.


Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it targeted officials from Puntland, a semiautonomous state in northeastern Somalia.

The al-Qaida-linked group has been carrying out a campaign of deadly violence targeting government officials, government and international troops.

At least six people, including two Turkish doctors, were killed in a drive-by shooting in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, yesterday.
