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.

"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.
