Mogadishu (HOL) - A rickshaw packed with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) was detonated by security forces in Mogadishu’s Hodan district on Friday afternoon.

Eyewitnesses say that the rickshaw exploded near the popular Fatxi restaurant on Teleh road.

However, the security officials told state-owned Radio Mogadishu that the security forces intercepted and exploded the rickshaw and added that the operator of the rickshaw, who suffered minor injuries, was also arrested. No one else was injured or killed in the blast.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
