An eyewitness reported that a suicide car bomb targeted a government convoy at a busy junction in Somalia’s capital on Saturday, killing at least eight people.

Farhan Qarole was in the convoy, and he survived the attack, the government news agency reported.

Neither party immediately claimed responsibility, but al-Shabaab, which aims to overthrow the government and implement its strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law, frequently carries out such attacks.

Eight bodies have been found at the scene, including a woman, Hassan Sayid Ali, a driver of a three-wheeled motorized taxi, told Reuters at the scene of the blast at Banadir junction in Mogadishu.
