At least five dead, several injured in Mogadishu attack

At least five people have been confirmed dead and several more injured in Sunday's attack in a courthouse in the Somali capital Mogadishu, police said.

"So far at least five people, among them civilians, were confirmed dead. The death toll could be higher since the situation is not under control yet," Ahmed Abdulkadir, a police officer at the scene, told AFP.
