At least 25 people were brought to hospitals in the capital, according medical officials.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Sunday’s explosion in the capital of Mogadishu. But the Al Qaeda linked Al Shabaab group claimed similar attacks in the capital for the past months.

The attack comes a day after at least two people were injured in a roadside explosion in the north of Mogadishu.
