At least three people have been killed and three others injured in an explosion in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, officials said.
The blast occurred at a garage near Black-Sea village in Hodan district. A landmine concealed inside rubbish blew up, local government spokesman Abdifitah Omar Halane said.
“The landmine explosion killed a security soldier and two civilians and wounded three others,” Halane stated.
The garage area has been condoned off.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which came at a time when Somali security forces are beefing up security in the capital.
