    A suicide car bomb attack, followed by gunfire, took place at a checkpoint outside the main base of an African Union peacekeeping force in the Somali capital on Monday, Reuters reports citing witnesses. Three people have been killed, according to local police.

    "A suicide car bomb rammed into the checkpoint outside the AMISOM base," Abdikadir Hussein, a police officer, told Reuters.

    Local police officer told Reuters that the death toll is likely to go up due to the force of explosion.

    There has been no claim of responsibility yet.
