MOGADISHU - A car bomb exploded at a shopping mall in Somalia's capital on Monday, killing 11 people and wounding 10 in an attack that police said was probably carried out by Islamist group Al-Shabaab.
The blast occurred in Mogadishu's Hamarweyne district, a busy area with shops and restaurants.
"Several dead people were removed from a wrecked building at the blast scene. So far death toll is 11 civilians and 10 others injured," police officer Mohamed Hussein said.
Hussein had earlier put the death toll at two.
A Reuters witness saw one dead person at the scene, where four cars burned and a restaurant was destroyed.
