Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Talk Tv -

TER­ROR­IST bombs killed at least 10 peo­ple and wounded eight more in the cap­i­tal of So­ma­lia.

The first blast in Mogadishu yes­ter­day came when a sus­pected sui­cide car bomber drove into a ho­tel pop­u­lar with politi­cians and VIPs.

It was fol­lowed by a sec­ond blast near the for­mer par­lia­ment house.

The at­tacks fol­low a mas­sive lorry bomb­ing two weeks ago, which killed more than 350 peo­ple.

The ex­trem­ist group al-Shabab has been tar­get­ing high-pro­file ar­eas of Mogadishu. The US military has car­ried out nearly 20 drone strikes on the ter­ror group this year.
