A senior Somalian police officer confirmed to the Garowe Online news website that a car laden with explosives had exploded at the entrance to the General Kahiye police training camp.
Tonight’s explosion only raises more questions: Area is highly-protected — just outside the biggest police academy, and also there is a nearby road used by the VIPs including the president to and from Mogadishu Airport.

A dozen injured people were taken to a local hospital, according to the officer.
Al Shabab terrorists claimed responsibility for the car bomb attack, the news website reported.
