MOGADISHU - A suicide bomber blew himself up near the Somali presidential palace on Tuesday, killing at least one soldier and wounding two, a palace guard at the scene said.

"The bomber killed one soldier and injured two others," the guard told Reuters.

"The man blew up himself near a wall between the Ethiopian embassy and the Somali PM's residence."

The two buildings are inside a sprawling compound that also houses the presidential palace.
