Police have disclosed that at least six people have been confirmed dead and others injured after a minibus hit a landmine near Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu.

Local media revealed that the passengers who were on their way to a funeral were mostly from the same family.

At the time of reporting, no group has claimed it was behind the blast.

Although, militant Islamist group al-Shabab are said to usually plant landmines along key roads.

“So far we know the blast killed six people and injured others. The death toll may rise,” police officer Farah Hassan told reporters.
