Blasts, gunfire heard in Somali capital Mogadishu
Mogadishu, Nov 9, 2018 (AFP) - Three large explosions hit the Somali capital Mogadishu on Friday, sending large plumes of smoke into the air, as volleys of gunfire rang out, an AFP reporter said.
Twin car bombs first went off near two popular hotels as well as the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) police headquarters, followed by gunfire and a third explosion in the same area a while later.
The exact target was not initially clear.
