At least 20 people have been killed and dozens more injured in a suicide car bombing in Mogadishu. The incident occured on the same day Somali Islamist militants stormed a jail in the semi-atonomus Puntland state.

The blast struck outside the Luul Yemeni restaurant on Friday evening, with eyewitness footage of the scene showing the scale of devastation as locals and first responders bearing torches searched through the debris in the dark for other victims.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, and local medics have warned that the death toll may rise. Local reports say the scale of the blast brought down one building. (RT)
