At least seven people have been killed by a massive car bomb blast at a restaurant in Somalia’s capital.

There are fears that al-Shabab extremists, who have vowed to destabilise the country’s new government, are behind the blast.

Several others were injured in the blast near the ministries of internal security and youth and sports in Mogadishu, Colonel Ahmed Hashi said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast.
