MOGADISHU - A car loaded with explosives rammed into the gates of an office housing Turkish embassy staff in the Somali capital, killing two people, witnesses and police said on Saturday.

"A suicide car bomb targeted a building housing Turkish embassy workers near k4 (Kilometer Four). So far two people dead," Ahmed Mohamud, police officer told Reuters from the scene of the blast.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the bombing, but in the past, al- Qaida-linked al Shabaab rebels have claimed responsibility for attacks, including one in-mid July that killed eight civilians.
