So­ma­lia bomb­ings kill at least 16

The Citizens' Voice - - NATION & WORLD -

A sui­cide bomb was det­o­nated in a restau­rant in the So­mali town of Baidoa and an­other blast struck a ho­tel nearby, leav­ing at least 16 peo­ple dead and more than 30 wounded, au­thor­i­ties said Sat­ur­day.

Most of the ca­su­al­ties were caused by the bomber who walked into the restau­rant with ex­plo­sives strapped around his waist, Col. Ahmed Muse told The As­so­ci­ated Press.

The al-qaida-linked alshabab ex­trem­ist group claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the blasts via its ra­dio arm, An­dalus.
