Strong Blast Outside Somali Parliament, One Dead
2012-11-08
[An Nahar] A strong blast rocked Somalia's parliament Wednesday, with at least one person killed, an Agence La Belle France Presse news hound at the scene said.

The blast, believed to be a car boom set off close to the parliament, is the latest in a string of attacks in the war-ravaged Somali capital.

A body of a Somali government security official dressed in military uniform could be seen following the kaboom.

No group immediately grabbed credit for the blast, but the al-Qaeda linked Shebab cut-throats have conducted a series of guerrilla style attacks in the capital since pulling out of fixed positions there last year.
