At Least 13 Killed as Deadly Blasts Hit Somalia Capital

Alwaght- At least 13 people have been killed and 17 injured in Somalia's capital after two explosions hit Mogadishu on Saturday.

The first car bomb detonated at a checkpoint near the national theatre, sending thick white smoke billowing into the sky, Dalsan TV reported.

The second explosion took place just minutes after, reportedly in the same area.

Al-Qaeda-affiliate al-Shabab group clamed responsibility for the terror attacks.

Images circulating on social media showed destroyed vehicles and debris littering the streets.

The explosions have shattered nearly a month of calm in Mogadishu, which is often the target of attacks by al-Shabab.

Al-Shabab is fighting to topple the Somali government and wants to impose a strict version of Islamic law in the Horn of Africa country.

The group used to control most parts of the country, but since 2010, the fighters have been removed from most major towns and cities.
