A powerful explosion occurred this afternoon at the Lord’s intersection in Mogadishu, next to Bar-kulan.
It is not yet known what caused the explosion, but preliminary reports are believed to have been carried out by a suicide bomber.
It is reported that the blast killed at least three people, while a number of others were injured, according to witnesses who spoke to RBC. The victims are reported to be civilians.
Reports indicate that the blast occurred at times when troops from the Somali government were dispatched.
The security situation in Mogadishu has improved in recent months, with several measures being taken to reduce the city’s explosions, particularly traffic.
Al-Shabaab’s car bombings appear to have turned into suicide bombers, as most of the roads they detonate are detonated.
