Suicide attack targets Somalian prime minister in Mogadishu


At least two people have died in a suicide attack at a compound housing the offices of Somalia's president and prime minister, officials say.

Dozens were also wounded when the bomber blew himself up at a checkpoint near the office of Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon in the capital Mogadishu.

The prime minister and president are said to be unharmed.
