An explosives-laden car has been seized by the Somali security forces in the capital Mogadishu on Tuesday, a day after a suicide car bomb attack killed five people, Wargane News reports.

The car was captured in the early morning hours along the busy road of Makka al-Mukarama, with the security forces partially closing the road for safety reasons.

A Police official told Horseed Media that they had prior information that a vehicle carrying explosives was planning to carry out an attack. Bomb disposal experts disposed the bomb setup inside the car following an examination.
