Deadly Attack On Somali Law Courtsmap

A number of people are reported to have been killed in attack on the main law courts in the Somali capital.

Gunmen entered the Mogadishu courts, detonating explosives and opening fire, witnesses and police said.

A shoot-out is taking place, amid a large security operation.

It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the violence, but most attacks in the city are blamed on Islamic militant group al-Shabaab.

Somalia has been slowly rebuilding itself following two decades of civil conflict.

Armed intruders entered the court in Mogadishu and began firing, after which there was an explosion.

An intelligence officer, Abdirahman Mohamed, told the French news agency AFP that at least one suicide bomber had blown himself up, leaving several people dead.
