  • Mayor of Somali capital severely injured after 'suicide attack' on offices

A security source, who asked not to be named, said a suicide bomber had entered a hall where the officials were meeting and detonated the blast inside.

Police in Somalia say a suicide bomber has walked into the office of Mogadishu's mayor during a security meeting and detonated explosives strapped to his waist.

The attack came an hour after the mayor met with senior officials from the Somalia-based United Nations office, including the United Nations envoy to Somalia, according to Mogadishu administration sources.

Abdirahman Omar Osman, the Mayor of Mogadishu and Governor of Benadir Regional Administration, speaks at the inauguration of a perimeter wall for the future office of Somalia's National Independent Electoral Commission in Mogadishu on 26 March 2018.

Somalia's information minister Mohamed Abdi Hayir said six officials were killed and six others were wounded.

In a statement, Shabaab said they had "killed numerous enemy".

The city was struck by a auto bomb on Monday, which left 17 dead and more than two dozen wounded.

"I condemn in the strongest terms today's horrific attack on the Mayor of Mogadishu's compound; an act of hate against the people of Somalis aimed to terrorize and curtail the country's progress". Some security officials said the attacker might have bribed corrupt officials. It was just the fourth time the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab had been known to use a female suicide bomber.

The mayor, Abdirahman Omar Osman, was in critical condition with head and stomach injuries, officials said.

In many regions of Somalia, particularly in the centre and south, insurgent operations against military and civilian targets are often carried out by the radical Islamic group al-Shabab, which seeks to impose on the state a caliphate based on Islamic law or Shariah.
