A suicide raid on Mogadishu's court complex left 14 dead Sunday, including nine attackers, while an almost simultaneous car bomb blast killed five in one of the Somali capital's worst days of violence in months, police and witnesses said.

In the first attack, gunmen wearing suicide vests stormed the main court complex in Mogadishu. Five civilians were killed, six attackers blew themselves up and three others were shot down.
