Six people including senior police officers were killed after a suicide bomber detonated explosives at a police station in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.
The bomber detonated the bombs at Waberi District Police Station killing police commander Major Ahmed Abdullahi Bashane.
Another senior police officer, Major Abdibasid Mohamud Agey, who was the former deputy commander of Waliyow Adde Division of the Banadir Regional Police, was also killed in the bombing.
Somali Police Spokesman Major Sadiq Adan Ali Dodishe told the media that those wounded in the attack also include senior police officers.
No group has said it carried out the attack. However, the al-Qaeda-allied al-Shabab militants have in the past carried out suicide bombings in Mogadishu and other parts of central and southern Somalia.
