Somalia : Deadly explosion attack targetted Maka Al-Mukarama Road in Mogadishu

Car bomb in Somalia leaves at least 5 dead, 10 injured

The fighting broke out when the al Shabaab militants ambushed the troops early Sunday in the Bula Marer district of the Lower Shabelle region, about 140 kilometres (84 miles) southwest of Mogadishu.

Uganda's defense ministry confirms the attack and says an unknown number of troops were killed.

The African Union Peacekeeping mission is now in its tenth year in Somalia, battling the Al-Qaeda-linked militant group and protecting the internationally-recognized government in Mogadishu.

The attack came hours after a vehicle bomb in the capital killed at least five people, a lot of them civilians, shattering a month of relative calm in Mogadishu.

The bomb detonated on a busy street in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

The extremist group maintains a presence largely in rural areas and continues to pose enormous challenges to the allied Somali and African Union forces travelling between remote towns.

A auto bomb explosion in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Sunday killed six and wounded 20 others and the death toll was likely to rise, a police officer said.

The explosion ended a month of relative calm in the city, which is often a target for the extremist group al-Shabab.

Most of the victims of Sunday's blast are reportedly civilians.

Al-Shabab is known to carry out attacks heavily populated areas like hotels and checkpoints, but did not claim the attack.

Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khayre described the bomb attack "as the deadliest attack in a month".
