The spokesman for the security forces, Mohamud Hasan, told the media that among those killed in “the deadliest attack I can remember in this city” were two deputy district commissioners, and said that 16 civilians were wounded.

The detonation destroyed a restaurant in Beledweyne city, capital of that region, 340 kilometers north of this capital, and according to the investigations the explosion took place when a suicide bomber set off his explosive vest in the place crowded with customers, the source said.

Witnesses said that several politicians were gathering in the place to discuss preparations for parliamentary elections in the town, including the Commissioner for Social Affairs, Abdirraman Kenyan, although it is not yet known if he is among the victims.

Two minors were killed and 16 other people were wounded in the capital last Tuesday after two police units were attacked by an Al Shabab cell.
