HUDUR, Somalia (AA) - More than 20 people, including soldiers, were killed and dozens others wounded on Monday when a suicide bombing rocked the Somali capital Mogadishu, a senior official said.

A senior security officer in Mogadishu, who spoke to Anadolu on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said a suicide bomber below himself up at a military training facility in Mogadishu, killing more than 20 people, including new recruits and military personnel.
