MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) —A lone suicide bomber blew himself up outside the main police station in Bosasso, Puntland's port town wounding five, police said.
Only the suicide bomber is killed, police officer Yassin Timir said.
"The man was pushing wheelbarrow before he approached our station and suddenly he blew himself up outside. Five were injured and were taken to the hospital." he said.
A health officer at the Bosasso General Hospital confirmed to Somali Update Online that two of the injured were in critical condition.
"We received five injuries from the blast scene. Two are in critical condition as one is severely burnt out." said the health officer who asked anonymity because of fear for his security.
Residents who were nearby rushed to the scene after the explosion and saw the parts of the suicide bomber's body including his head scattered nearby.
"He was a middle-aged man. I could see his head cut with a lot of blood." Sundus Abdirahman who was among residents who visited the scene told Somali Update Online.
No group has yet claimed responsibility of the attack. The militant group Al-Shabaab previously carried similar attacks in Puntland.
The attack comes in a time Bosasso residents were mourning for the victims of last week's deadly Mogadishu bombing with fundraising event held in Bosasso.
