KISMAYO, Somalia- At least five people were killed and more than a dozen wounded in a deadly car bomb explosion in Somalia's southern port town of Kismayo on Tuesday afternoon, Garowe Online reports.

A witness has confirmed to GO, that a vehicle-laden with explosives went off at the entrance of the busy tea-shop named "Shah-Ma'an" which is located near Jubaland state Parliament compound.

The sound of the powerful explosion was heard across the seaside city, and damaged the cafe, causing heavy casualties, mostly elders, and local youths and Jubaland security officers. Unconfirmed reports indicated that a bomber blew up himself inside the building.

Jubaland forces sealed off the scene near the blast site, where a thick column of white smoke rose into the cloudy sky as ambulances sirens were heard from distance, rushing the wounded to nearby hospital.

Medical officials at Kismayo general hospital said the death toll was likely to rise because of the number of seriously injured in the cafe bombing. Jubaland administration is yet to comment on the attack.

No group has claimed the responsibility for the attack, but militants from Somalia-based Islamist group al-Shabaab frequently carry out attacks on government and civilian targets in the country.

Dude, wallah I had no ill intention. The story was in my feed. That's all.

But yes, obviously I'm a qabilist (I never denied that) but I don't espouse qabaylaad much. There's a difference between the two.
Wallahi hooyadey nafta ka saar you have ill intention, in fact you are scum for pretending otherwise.

Call me scum all you like I could care less but I'm not happy that innocent civilians died. Yes, I am a proud of my clan but unlike you, I don't go on a hating spree 24/7.

I never celebrate death. Checkout the Galala terrorist attack thread where I said "AUN."

Lool I knew you was going to say that (Puntland arrests journalist thread isn't it?) but that's probably the only thread I made about Puntland.

No doubt I delve in my fair share of point scoring like many of us do here; however, I didn't intend to at this occasion since it's sensitive news.

If you guys thought I did then I sincerely apologise.
