Nine killed in ‘al-Shabab attack’ on security facility in Mogadishu

An attack on a security facility in the Somali capital has left at least nine people dead, including four attackers, police said.

Captain Mohamed Hussein said suspected militants from the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab carried out the attack on the Central Investigations Department in Mogadishu.

He said the assault started with twin suicide car bombings at the gates of the security facility, then at least two gunmen on foot fought their way inside.
