MOGADISHU: A suspected suicide car bomb hit a restaurant in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Saturday, killing at least three people, a police officer and a witness said.

“A suicide car bomb rammed into Blue Sky restaurant,” police Major Abdikadir Hussein, told Reuters. He said it was too early to confirm if there were casualties, but one witness said he had seen at least three dead.

Residents said the restaurant was frequented by members of the national security forces. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Islamist group al Shabaab has launched many similar attacks in Mogadishu in the past.
