Mogadishu/UNI/SPUTNIK: Militants of al-Shabaab, an affiliate of al-Qaeda have claimed responsibility for the explosion in Somalia's capital city Mogadishu which killed eleven soldiers and injured sixteen others, local publication Somali Guardian reported.

The attack was carried out on Tuesday by a suicide bomber who, according to eye witnesses, targeted a number of security officials at a tea shop. Gunfire was heard soon after the explosion.

There were no reports of injured civilians, the website mentions.

Days prior the attack, local media warned residents to stay vigilant amid threats of possible suicide bombers as soldiers wearing explosive vests entered the capital city.
