Eight killed in Mogadishu landmine explosion

Cape Argus: "Nairobi - At least eight Somali civilians, mostly women, were killed on Sunday when their minibus was blown up by a landmine in the Somali capital, witnesses said.

Five others were injured in the explosion in southern Mogadishu's Afisiyone road, said survivor and driver Abdullahi Moalim.

'As I drove, something blew up and I don't know what it really was,' Moalim told AFP, adding that the bodies of the eight passengers who died were in a terrible state."
