In twin car bomb blasts in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, five people were killed and several got injured badly on Sunday, July 31.

Police said the blasts hit the gate of the Criminal Investigation Department headquarters before militants stormed the building. Spontaneous gunfire could be heard, Xinhua news agency reported.


The Al-Shabaab militant group claimed responsibility for the attack. The group, which is fighting against the Somali government, frequently stages attacks in Mogadishu.

The death toll could rise as the injured were in critical condition, a police official told Xinhua. The CID headquarters is located alongside on a busy road.
