MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A police official says a security guard died while fending off suicide bombers who were trying to storm into a popular Mogadishu restaurant.
Yusuf Abdi said Saturday that security guards at the gate of The Village restaurant shot at the two suicide bomber who tried to enter without going through the security check.
Abdi said the bombers detonated their explosives killing one guard. The blast shattered the restaurant's glass windows and punctured the tires of luxury cars parked outside.
The attack was likely carried out by the Islamist extremist rebels of al-Shabab which has been fighting the Somali government for nearly five years. Africa Union forces pushed the al-Qaida affiliated group out of Mogadishu in August 2011 but the rebels continue to carry out suicide attacks in the capital.
