One dead in Mogadishu bombing: police

MOGADISHU: At least one person was killed Friday in a car bomb explosion close to a hotel and government security offices in the Somali capital Mogadishu, police and witnesses said. The blast, which comes amid a wave of attacks in the capital by al Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels, targeted a bar near the City Palace hotel close to Somalia’s intelligence and security headquarters. The hotel is known to be popular with officials from the country’s internationally backed government, and witnesses said the target may have been a senior security official who was in the area at the time.
