A suspected suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into an armored convoy of African Union troops Friday in the Somali capital, witnesses said, the latest in a string of attacks.

Initial reports from witnesses near the blast said a car targeted AU troops on a busy street close to the central K4 roundabout, while local media confirmed a loud blast followed by heavy gunfire.
