Mogadishu - A suicide bomber on Saturday blew himself up inside
a restaurant in central Mogadishu, not far from the presidential palace,

The Village restaurant - which has now been targeted four
times - is popular with government officials, local journalists, businesspeople
and ordinary civilians, including Somalis returned from abroad.
So far, most of those reported killed are civilians who were
inside the cafe at the time, according to one Somali police officer, Mahad
Hussein, who spoke to dpa over phone.
The bombing occurred at about 09:45 local time (06:45 GMT)
