At least 10 dead in Somali capital bombing

MOGADISHU. Somalia (AP) — A car packed with explosives rammed into a popular restaurant in Somalia’s capital on Friday night, and police said at least 10 people were killed and more than 30 wounded. Police spokesman Sadiq Ali Adan blamed the attack on the local al-Shabab extremist group, which is linked to al-Qaida and often targets Mogadishu with bombings. The Luul Yamani restaurant also was attacked last year. At least one building near the restaurant collapsed after the blast, and people were feared to be trapped in the rubble. The blast occurred at dinner time when the restaurant was full.
