3 killed in suicide bombing near Somalia’s presidential palace

At least three people were killed and seven others injured in a suicide car bombing in Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday evening, a government official confirmed.

Ismael Mukhtar Omar, government spokesman, said a suicide bomber targeted Blue Sky restaurant near the heavily fortified presidential palace in Mogadishu.

“Three people were killed and seven others injured in suicide bombing outside Blue Sky restaurant,” Omar said in a brief statement.

The latest explosion came after a security warning of an imminent terror attack in the restive capital.
