MOGADISHU (Reuters) - An explosion hit the newly-reopened national theatre in Mogadishu on Wednesday during an event attended by officials, witnesses said.

One witness, Said Mugambe, told Reuters he could see four dead bodies. Initial witness reports suggested a suicide bomber was behind the blast in Somalia's capital.
