Al Jazeera reports that the source of the explosion was a suicide bomber, who reportedly “rammed a car laden with explosives into a pickup truck.”
Eyewitnesses state that the attack was targeted at Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency.
Five people including the bomber, have been confirmed dead.
According to reports, the incident comes just days after a US air strike killed Al-Shabab’s intelligence chief, Abdishakur Tahlil.
