MOGADISHU, July 19, 2014 (AFP) - Six people were killed in a southern Somali port town on Saturday after a suicide bomber targeted the house of a prominent anti-Shebab militia leader, the intended victim said.
"The explosion occurred soon after I entered the house," tribal leader Iftin Hassan Basto said in a statement.
"My security guards saw a man who tried to infiltrate them and when they confronted him he blew himself up."
Basto added that six people, including a child, were killed and seven others injured.
