Suicide bombing kills six at police station in Somali capital

(AP)- A suicide car bomb has killed at least six people and injured five others at a police station in the Somali capital, police said.

Captain Mohamed Hussein said the attack early on Sunday targeted a police station near the Mogadishu port and largely destroyed the building and others nearby.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, the second blast in the seaside capital in two days.

A suspected suicide car bomber detonated an explosives-laden vehicle at a security checkpoint near Mogadishu on Saturday when soldiers stopped him for security checks.

Despite being ousted from most of its key strongholds in Somalia, Islamic extremist group al-Shabab still launches deadly attacks across large parts of south and central Somalia.
