Mogadishu car bombing attacks: Ten killed in airport blasts

Trouble reigns in all parts of the world.

BBC reports at least 10 people have been killed in two car bomb attacks near an entrance to the airport in Mogadishu, Somali police and eyewitnesses have said.

Thick smoke could be seen rising from the area, where there is also a base for African Union (AU) peacekeepers. 

Local journalists said one of the bombs was detonated by a suicide attacker near a checkpoint. Another blast hit the airport's perimeter wall.
Those killed were believed to include security guards at the checkpoint.
The militant Islamist group, al-Shabab, has said it was behind the blasts and its target was the AU force's headquarters.
