    Somalia:At 8 eight Killed in Al-Shabab suicide car bomb attack

    The Islamic extremist group Al-Shabab has rammed a vehicle laden with explosives into a checkpoint near the Presidential Palace in Somalia.

    At least eight people were killed in the explosion and nine others were wounded a police spokesman said.

    The checkpoint is used by President Mohamed Farmajo and Prime Minister Mohamed Roble to get safely to and from the airport in the capital, Mogadishu.

    The al-Qaida-linked group has carried out many such attacks in its insurgency against the UN-backed government for the last decade and over 4,000 people have died.
