In Somalia, a bomb explosion has occurred at a restaurant in the Southern Somalia town of Baidoa and has killed six people.
News making rounds reveal that there has also been a suicide bomb attack close to the port of the capital, Mogadishu, which injured at least seven. Militant group al-Shabab said it was behind both incidents.
Recalled that the UN-backed government has been battling against al-Shabab for control of the country for more than a decade.
The militants, who are allied to al-Qaeda, said that in Baidoa they were targeting tax collectors, who were holding a meeting at the restaurant, and soldiers.
They added that two soldiers died in the attack but officials said the victims were all civilians.
