A car bomb exploded at a checkpoint in Somalia's capital Wednesday morning, killing three people and wounding six others, a local official said.
The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group quickly claimed responsibility.
Salah Omar, a spokesman for Mogadishu's mayor, told The Associated Press the blast occurred as soldiers conducted searches at a checkpoint.
