MOGADISHU, Somalia (AA) - At least two people were injured in a bomb attack targeting a Turkish education body’s vehicle in Somalia’s capital on Thursday, police said.

An improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a bullet proof vehicle carrying Turkish engineers of the Maarif Foundation near the busy KM-5 intersection known as Zoobe, said Jabril Ibrahim Ali, a police officer in Mogadishu.

The wounded have been rushed to the hospital and their condition is not life-threatening, hospital sources said.

Local media reports said a Turkish woman was injured in the attack but the engineers are safe.

Through their propaganda radio, Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Shabaab militants claimed responsibility for the attack.

Last week, three people including two bodyguards were injured in an IED explosion that struck a Turkish engineers' vehicle in the vicinity of Weydow, outside of Mogadishu.
