Loud explosion and gunfire heard in Mogadishu


A loud explosion was heard in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu on Monday morning, followed by heavy gunfire.

Reuters reports that the blast took place at the first checkpoint on the K4 road that leads to Mogadishu airport.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the al Qaeda-linked Islamist insurgent group al-Shabaab frequently launches large attacks in Somalia.
