Al Qaeda affiliated terror group al Shabaab claims responsibility for attack, with students, civilians among dead.

At least eight people were killed over 17 others wounded in a car bombing that rocked Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Thursday morning, officials said.
A police officer who spoke to Anadolu Agency said the attack targeted a convoy of the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
"The bomb attack took place during rush hour and there are a lot casualties but I can confirm that at least eight people were killed and more than 17 others were wounded," he said.
The dead and injured include students and teachers who were at a school near the bomb site, he added.
According to local media, police also confirmed that the target of the attack was a convoy belonging to a local firm that "guards the UN" but did not elaborate on whether any UN staffers were killed or injured in the blast.
Abdukadir Adan, the chairman of a local ambulance service, said on Twitter that the attack took place in front of a school in the district of Hodan, killing and injuring students and civilians nearby.
Somali-based al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it had targeted an AMISOM convoy. -
