Somali government spokesperson Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimuu was injured in a suicide car bombing in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Sunday, said a police source.
Police spokesman Abdifitah Aden said that a suicide bomber blew himself up at Moalimuu’s vehicle at a busy Dabka intersection in Mogadishu.
“The government spokesman is currently hospitalized in Mogadishu,” Aden told journalists and promised to provide more details once the ongoing investigations are completed.
Witnesses said the former journalist escaped with slight injuries and is out of danger.
No group has claimed responsibility for the explosion so far.
