A suicide bomber blew himself up near a busy shopping mall and a police station in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Tuesday, officials said, with no casualties as yet confirmed.

-A man blew himself up between the Mogadishu Mall and the Hamar Weyne District Police Station in Mogadishu- said Ismail Mukhtar Oronjo, spokesman for the Information Ministry.

-He exploded while security forces were chasing him after the police identified him as a suspect before the bomb went off.-

Eyewitness who spoke to Anadolu Agency over the phone said that they saw at least two people wounded.

Hamar Weyne is a major commercial district in Mogadishu and the second-busiest market in the capital.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but terrorist group al-Shabaab, affiliated with al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for recent attacks in the Horn of African country.
