Somali capital bombing kills 16

A policeman and 15 civilians have been killed
in a suicide car bomb attack in the Somali
capital, Mogadishu.

The city's governor said the bomb was detonated
at a police checkpoint, about 200m from a look-
out post belonging to the African Union
peacekeeping mission.

Mohamed Osman Ali described the attack as a
"massacre", but said it was not immediately

The AU mission is guarding Mogadishu's presidential
palace, but most of the city is controlled by
Islamist rebels.
