MOGADISHU - Police in Somalia have said they foiled a suicide attack in the capital city of Mogadishu, a media report said Saturday.
Islamist militants tried to carry out a suicide attack when a gunman armed with explosives tried to ram a petrol tanker into the city’s port area, Xinhua reported citing police officials.
At least three police officers were killed and four were wounded Thursday after a car bomb exploded outside the gate of the international airport in Mogadishu.
Al Qaeda-linked group Al Shebab has claimed responsibility for the airport attack.
