MOGADISHU - At least three people were killed including the suicide bomber who attacked a convoy of African Union peacekeepers in the Somali capital on Friday, a senior official said.
"The suicide car bomb killed two civilians and injured several others (there were) no deaths or damage on the AU side," Abdikafi Hilowle, the secretary of Mogadishu mayor, told reporters at the scene.
"We shall not bury the remains of the bomber. We shall throw them into the rubbish pit. If al Shabaab (Islamist militants) are Muslims, they would not kill Muslims during Ramadan," he said, referring to the holy month when Muslims fast.
