15 Die In Somalia Restaurant Blast
MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — Police in Somalia say two explosions at a restaurant frequented by government workers have killed at least 15 people.
Early reports indicated that a car bomb blast and a suicide bomber attacked a restaurant near Mogadishu's State House. The restaurant, 'The Village', has been attacked by militants before.
Ali Hussein, a senior police commander, said 15 people were killed and at least 20 wounded in the blasts, which appeared to tear much of the roof off the restaurant.
An Associated Press reporter at the scene said wounded people screaming in pain were being evacuated by ambulance.
