At least two people were killed and 15 injured on Sunday in a suspected suicide bombing at a busy restaurant in central Somalia.
“The attacker detonated his suicide belt in Beledweyne town [in Hiran region near the Ethiopian border],” said Omar Adan, the local governor.
The casualties include three journalists and several civilians, he added.
Mohammed Ali, a medical officer, said he had received 15 injured at the local hospital.
Al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based militant group, claimed responsibility for the attack.
The group has been driven out of Somalia's major towns by a UN-mandated African Union force (Amisom) of some 18,000 soldiers, but still controls large parts of southern Somalia.Last Mod: 10 Eylül 2017, 16:29
