At least seven people were killed and 11 wounded, including two soldiers, when a car exploded outside police headquarters in somalia’s capital on April 28, the Associated Press reported. Al-Shabaab in Somalia claimed responsibility for the attack.
A police spokesman said the driver of the suicide bombing had intended to drive into the police headquarters but was stopped. If he succeeds in entering the headquarters, it will lead to more casualties.
Observers believe that al-Shabab in Somalia may take advantage of the current political tensions in Somalia to launch another attack.
Tens of thousands of residents of the capital have fled their homes after the country’s president’s planned extension triggered armed clashes, according to the United Nations.
