Suicide bomber kills five in Somalia

A suicide bomber has detonated explosives near a military training camp in Somalia, killing at least five people and wounding eleven others.

The attack at the camp in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, was claimed by the al-Shabab armed group and comes a week after twin explosions in the capital that left at least one hundred and sixteen dead.

National Army Chief, Odowaa Rageh said the troops thwarted the bomber from reaching his target.
