Somalia car bomb: Blast rips through Mogadishu market
A car bomb has killed at least 11 people and injured 16 others in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu.
The blast hit a market in the Waberi area, while President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was visiting a nearby university.
No group claimed responsibility, but suspicion fell on the Islamist militant group al-Shabab.
"There was chaos and severed dead bodies strewn around the street," said Abdulahi Osman, a witness.
