Shebab claim responsibility for Mogadishu attack

Somalia's Al Qaeda-linked Shebab claimed responsibility for a suicide raid on Mogadishu's main court complex Sunday that left at least five civilians and several attackers, a spokesman for the group said.

"This was a holy action which targeted non-believers who were in a meeting within the court complex. We will continue until Somalia is liberated from invaders," Shebab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamed Rage told AFP.
