Suicide bombers kill 15 in Mogadishu

At least 15 people have been killed after two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a restaurant in central Mogadishu.

It came a week after militants attacked a hotel where Somalia’s new president was giving a news conference.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the latest blast. However, suspicions will fall on the Islamist militant group al Shabaab. It has carried out a campaign of suicide bombings since it withdrew from the capital last year under military pressure.
