MOGADISHU: At least 15 peo­ple were killed and scores in­jured in a bomb ex­plo­sion that hit the Wada­jir dis­trict head­quar­ters in the So­mali cap­i­tal yes­ter­day.

In­ter­nal Se­cu­rity Min­istry spokesman Ahmed Mo­hamed Mo­hamud said a ve­hi­cle loaded with ex­plo­sives det­o­nated in­side the head­quar­ters and de­stroyed houses nearby.

Am­bu­lances rushed to the scene and took the wounded to nearby hos­pi­tals. Ter­ror group al-Shabaab has claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack. Most of the ca­su­al­ties were re­ported to be civil­ians who were near the scene at the time of the car bomb ex­plo­sion. Xin­hua
