MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A Somali police official says a suicide car bomb explosion in Mogadishu killed only the bomber.
Police officer Abdullahi Barise said three bystanders were wounded when the c ar exploded Friday. The bomber appeared to be targeting a convoy of African Union and Somali troops.
Al-Shabab militants, who controlled Mogadishu for several years until they were pushed out in August 2011, continue to carry out insurgent-style attacks in the capital.
African Union and Somali troops have greatly expanded their area of control of Mogadishu and outlying areas over the last 18 months, leading to one of the most peaceful periods in Mogadishu in years.
