MOGADISHU - A car bomb went off in the Somali capital, followed by a second blast and gunfire near the president's residence, police and a Reuters witness said on Friday.

"We understand it is a suicide car bomb near the presidential palace area. Then another blast followed, with gunfire. It is too early to know details and target," Major Mohamed Ahmed, a police officer told Reuters.

A Reuters witness said a huge cloud of smoke could be seen in the sky.
