A suicide attacker rammed a bomb-laden car into a police station in the Somali town of Afgoye on Tuesday, killing four police officers, and militants then stormed the area, local authorities said.
"Many militants have entered the town. Heavy fighting is taking place," police major Nur Osman told Reuters.
