Mogadishu (HOL) - At least five civilians were killed, and over a dozen others wounded when a roadside bomb struck a passenger minibus and an auto-rickshaw in Mogadishu on Monday night, according to police.

The explosion occurred at the SOS intersection in the Heliwaa district during the evening rush hour, police reported. Security forces promptly arrived at the scene to assist the injured while investigations were ongoing.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack; however, the police have attributed it to al-Shabab militants.

Earlier this month, at least eight people were killed and 19 others injured in a series of bombings in the main Bakara market in Mogadishu. Business leaders in the market stated that the explosions targeted a chain of shops selling electronics.
