MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Islamist militant group al-Shabaab took responsibility for the double car suicide bombing, targeting police station in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, which killed five civilians and one police officer, Somali Minister of Internal Security Abdirizak Mohamed said Sunday.

"7 AS [al-Shabaab] attackers of CID [Criminal Investigative Police Division] were killed by our brave forces; final casualties are, 5 civilian &1 police died in the attack & 5 others injured," Mohamed wrote on his official Twitter account.

On June 26, at least a dozen people were killed when two vehicles exploded on the way to a base for African Union peacekeepers near Mogadishu International Airport.

Somalia has been experiencing violence since the country devolved into civil war in the early 1990s. The state’s collapse provided a breeding ground for warlords, pirates and the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Shabaab.
