At least 22 people were killed in an attack by militant group al-Shabaab in Mogadishu on Friday, security officials and medical sources said.

Twin car bombs were used in the attack near the Somali capital’s presidential palace, which was followed by a fierce gun battle between the attackers and the security forces.

The first blast went off at about 6:30 pm (1530 GMT), followed minutes later by a second explosion, both near up-market hotels, the intelligence agency headquarters and the president’s home.

Mohamed Yusuf, Director of Madiina Hospital where many of the dead and injured were taken, said most had been killed in the first car blast.
