At least four people have been killed in a car bomb blast next to a UN convoy in Somalia’s capital, police say.
The bomb exploded as the convoy travelled along the road near the airport in Mogadishu, police said.
A second blast targeted African Union (AU) troops about 25km (15 miles) from the city, but details are sketchy, a BBC reporter says.
Al-Shabab, linked to al-Qaeda, has often carried out attacks in Somalia and neighbouring Kenya.

It has not commented on the latest explosions.
‘Smoke all around’
