At least two people were killed and several others wounded in a bomb attack in the Somali capital of Mogadishu on Saturday, an official said.

Abdifatah Hassan, a city police officer, told Anadolu Agency over the phone that the bomb exploded at a small but busy market in the Ex-control Afgoye neighborhood.

"We don't know what caused the bomb blast," Hassan said, "but we suspect that a suicide bomber wearing explosive vests blew himself up in the market, killing at least two people."

He added that security forces have reached the blast site and started an investigation.
Local media reported that eight people, mostly civilians, were wounded in the explosion and were rushed to hospitals for treatment.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, the al-Qaeda-affiliated group al-Shabaab has admitted responsibility for recent attacks in the Horn of Africa country.
