Gunmen launch deadly attack on Mogadishu courthouse

At least 19 people have been killed in bomb and gun attacks in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

Sixteen people, including nine attackers, are believed to have died after gunmen stormed the city's main court buildings.

Later a car bomb was detonated on the road to the airport, killing three, including two Turkish aid workers and the attacker.

The BBC's Mohamed Ibrahim said the attack had damaged people's confidence just as the security situation was improving.
