Somalia's Shebab insurgents killed at least six people Wednesday in a suicide attack on a diplomatic convoy from the United Arab Emirates in the Somali capital Mogadishu, police and the Islamists said.
"We have confirmed the death of six people, four of them civilians, while six others were also wounded, some seriously," police officer Abdukadir Hassan told AFP. The Shebab said they carried out the attack, which is believed to be the first time the Al-Qaeda affiliate has targeted the UAE in Somalia.
