At least eight people were killed when a suicide car bomb targeting a government convoy exploded at a busy junction in Somalia’s capital on Saturday.

The convoy was carrying senior police official Farhan Qarole, who survived the attack, the government news agency reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but al-Shabaab, which wants to overthrow the government and impose its strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law, frequently carries out such bombings.

“I have seen eight dead bodies at the scene including a woman,” Hassan Sayid Ali, a driver of a three-wheeled motorised vehicle taxi at the scene of the blast at Banadir junction in Mogadishu revealed
