Suicide bomber strikes near Somali presidential palace

A suicide bomber blew himself up near the Somali presidential palace on Tuesday, killing at least one soldier and wounding two, a palace guard at the scene said.


"The bomber killed one soldier and injured two others," the guard told Reuters. "The man blew up himself near a wall between the Ethiopian embassy and the Somali PM's residence." The two buildings are inside a sprawling compound that also houses the presidential palace. (Reuters)
