Another Suicide Bombing Hits Somali, Killing 9 People


A suicide bombing has killed at least nine people and injured nearly 20 in a Somali military base.

The base is near the newly renovated sports stadium that was reopened last month.

Al-Shabab militants claimed responsibility for the explosion.

The attack is the second in the volatile seaside city this month.

Last week, a suicide bomber linked to the same militant group blew himself up at a popular restaurant, Lul Yemeny eatery, near Mogadishu seaport. The attack killed at least three people.

Al-Shabab occupied Mogadishu for years before being driven out in 2011.

In March, the same terrorist militant group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed Abdisalan Hassan Hersi, the former governor of Nugaal region, in Garowe, nearly 600 miles from Mogadishu.

Al-Shabab also claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in Mogadishu in March that killed three people.
