Somalia: Suicide bombs wounded one official police at Bakara Market in Mogadishu

At least one person have been killed and four wounded by a suicide bomb in Bakara market  in today.

Mogadishu – At least ten people were killed on Monday by a car bomb in central Mogadishu in one of the bloodiest attacks in the war-ravaged capital in recent months, Somali officials said.

Al-Qaeda linked Shabaab insurgents later claimed the monday attack and named the targeted intelligence official.

Mogadishu has been rocked by several small attacks – including both car bombs and suicide attackers – in recent months.

This is the second attack is the worst in the city since September, when two suicide bombers killed 18 people in a restaurant.

Somalia has been ravaged by conflict since 1991 but a new UN-backed government took power in September, ending eight years of transitional rule by a corruption-riddled administration.

Many have said the new government offers the most serious hope for stability since the fall of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre in 1991.
