Three suicide car bombs exploded outside Somalia's government base of Baidoa, a senior official said Thursday. "Three cars have arrived at government checkpoint and as the police tried to check them, they exploded," Deputy Defense Minister Salad Ali Jelle told The Associated Press. "I have seen three dead people," photographer Mohamed Adule Hassan told The Associated Press. He said the vehicle exploded at a government checkpoint on the outskirts of the town. "There were flames everywhere," added Seyla Maryan, another reporter at the scene. "There were many injured people. I could not count the number of bodies." On Sept. 18. a suicide car bomber tried to kill President Abdullahi Yusuf. The president escaped unharmed; 11 people were killed in the explosion and a subsequent gunbattle, including Yusuf's younger brother.
