Two people died on Tuesday in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu after a suicide bomber blew himself up in a restaurant near a police base, a police spokesman and a witness said.

“A blast occurred at a restaurant near School Policio (police base), we shall give details later,” police spokesman Sadik Ali told Reuters.

It was still unclear who was behind the attack.

A nearby shopkeeper Mohamed Ali said at least two people were dead from the blast.

Last week, at least six people were killed and 20 got injured in a suicide bombing outside a mosque in the Somalian port city of Kismayo.

Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for that attack. The armed group, which has ties to al-Qaeda terror group, regularly launches attacks on government officials, journalists and prominent businessmen, as well as civilians, in the country.
