At least 10 people were killed in an explosion when a suicide bomber drove his car into a tea shop near the national security headquarters in Somalia's capital, a senior police officer said on Thursday. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, the second in almost a week in the city after Islamist militant group al Shabaab said it was behind an attack on the president's palace on Friday.
