A bomb blast destroyed two houses near Somalia's violent capital, killing seven people, including four children, police said Friday. The seven were watching television when the explosion occurred. "It was awful," said Mohamed Ali Roble, a relative of the family who had fled the growing violence in Mogadishu last month to stay with relatives in Afgoye, a town 30 kilometers to the east. "They were all lying in a pool of blood." Police say the explosion was caused by a bomb but are still investigating. Police official Aden Obile Ahmed added one woman lost a leg in addition to the seven dead.
