Suicide bomber only kills himself after misfiring

  • A suicide car bomber ended up detonating his bomb near a hotel in the Somali capital and killed only himself. 

    Authorities mentioned that the man probably detonated his explosives prior to the planned timing and no one else got killed or injured in the attack. Terrorist group al-Shabab attacks the Somali government, the UN, and African Union peacekeepers regularly. 

    A suicide car bomber blasted his car near the intelligence agency headquarters of Somalia only last month. At least 12 people died in the blast.
