    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. :rolleyes:

    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. :eek:

    They can't be that stupid. I fail to believe this.

    USA has a presence in Somalia too. Nephew told me he is scheduled to be in Somalia 2013. Ya, they got things somewhat planned out that far into the future which is prudent; no matter what changes in the world. By then the entire middle east might have blown right up.

    I have a few buddies who have been back several times in some other roles working the PMC side; AFTER they were over there doing some quiet ops and this was just within the last couple of years.

    "Somehow exploded" sounds like they didn't search the car of someone that they arrested for being a suicide bomber. I guess Mogadishu PD aren't all that thorough.

    They knew the bomb was in the car. They didn't know what to do about it. The BG did, and he did.
