Eight people have been killed and over a dozen injured in a car bombing near a school in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, the latest attack claimed by Al-Shabaab jihadists in the troubled country. The AFP news agency reports that Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying it was aimed at “military trainers” but local security sources said that many of the injured were students. Witnesses said a large convoy carrying troops from AMISOM, the African Union force fighting the militants, was passing through the area when the bomb went off and that the explosion had caused heavy damage to the school and vehicles parked nearby.
