MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A Somali police officer says a suicide bomber killed himself and one civilian in a bombing of a restaurant in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

Capt. Mohamed Hussein said Saturday that the bomber, who sat among diners, wounded three other people at the Village Restaurant near the national theater.

No group has claimed the responsibility for the bombing, but the Somali based al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabab extremist group often carry out such attacks.

Mogadishu has seen a series of attacks by the militant group which is fighting the government and the African Union forces supporting it.

Al-Shabab rebels were ousted from Mogadishu, in 2011 and have been pushed out of key cities, but they are not yet defeated and the government remains weak.
