At least two people died and a third was injured in a suspected suicide bombing outside a restaurant in the Somalian capital, Mogadishu.

 

The blast occurred at the entrance of the Lul Yemeny restaurant after a man was prevented from entering the building, according to police.

At the scene, police spokesman Sadiq Adan Ali said:

”A vigilant security guard for the restaurant stopped the suicide bomber from getting inside the restaurant. The bomber (then) suddenly blew himself up outside of the bar as you can see.”
