According to reports about 11 people have died, following  a suspected car bomb which exploded at a market in Mogadishu, Somalia on Saturday.

Beside the number of dead people, about 16 others are said to be seriously injured and currently taking treatment and not forgetting peoples shops.

Police Spokesperson Colonel Abdikadir Farah while Speaking to Reuters , said the situation was grave and that they expect that the death toll will rise as the weekend progresses.

“The whole market is ruined and people perished. The death toll is sure to rise,” said Colonel Abdikadir Farah.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but immediate suspicion fell on the Al-Qaeda-linked group, al-Shabab, which is locked in battle against the Somali government and which regularly mounts attacks in the city.

Its most deadly recent attack was in August, when a car bomb outside a popular hotel close to the presidential palace left 15 dead.
