Car bomb hits UN cars, kills 2 in Somalia

MOGADISHU-

A car bomb explosion on Thursday killed two people and wounded four more near the airport of Somalia capital, officials have said.

The blast occurred when a suicide attacker drove an explosives-laden car into two bulletproof United Nations’ cars and detonated it, said an official.

The area of the attack, Mogadishu’s airport, is heavily guarded. It is considered one of the city’s safe havens.

No U.N. personnel were killed or injured, a U.N. spokeswoman in Mogadishu said.

Terror network Al-Shabaab, al Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Spokesman Sheikh Abdiazia Abu Musab claimed that the blast killed three foreign United Nations employees.

The group has been designated a terrorist organization by the United States.

It hopes to turn Somalia into a fundamentalist Islamic state by force but has launched attacks in other countries, such as Kenya and Uganda,that have killed dozens.
