MOGADISHU, Somalia – An ambulance official and a witness in Somalia say a car bomb exploded in Mogadishu, killing four people.
Ali Muse, the head of the city's ambulance service, said the Tuesday blast killed three civilians. Shopkeeper Abdiqadir Abdulahi said he saw one dead policeman as well.
The blast happened near the former Egyptian Embassy though the circumstances weren't immediately clear.
A policeman named Abdi Hassan said a would be suicide car bomb was intercepted hours before the blast and the suicide bomber arrested. But Hassan said the car somehow
exploded hours later while in the custody of police.
What they leave out, as reported by Fox TV this morning is:
The cops had the guy for hours. He " promised " to defuse the bomb if they would let him.
They take him back to the " armed with a bomb " car. He gets in it, and blows it up with everybody around it.
I donno, maybe it's just me.
