MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — At least one person is dead and four others injured after car bomb went off in Mogadishu main busy Maka al-Mukarama road on Friday afternoon, Spokesman of the Internal Security Ministry Ahmed Sayid Arab said.
The explosives-laden Toyota CARIB vehicle was parked between Daru-Shifa hospital and Ambassador Hotel when it exploded killing a woman and wounding her four kids who were riding the three-wheeled tuk tuk taxi.
"It's unfortunate attack. This was car bomb that targeted the city centre. A woman is dead and four young kids injured." the ministry spokesman said.
Officials from the security apparatus and the commanders of the Mogadishu stabilization force reached the scene as the huge blast was heard in the major parts of the horn of African capital.
According to Mogadishu ambulance service driver, the name of the woman and her kids are yet to identified. The four kids are now at the hospital as their fate is yet unknown.
"We have taken the lifeless body of the woman, whom we could not identify. The body was badly burnt out." Ali Diriye, the driver told Somali Update Online.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, though the Islamist militant group Al Shabaab has launched frequent attacks in the city.
Friday's car bomb comes barely five days after an Al-Shabab claimed suicide car bomber hit the business premises near Waberi police station on the same road killing at least six civilians Sunday last week.
