A suicide bomber blew himself up in an ice-cream parlor in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Friday, killing six people and wounding eight, an official said.


It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the blast, but the al-Qaeda-affiliated group al Shabaab frequently carries out bombings in the capital and elsewhere.


The Gelato Divino parlour is located near K4 Junction in the heart of Mogadishu, near the international airport.


"A suicide bomber blew up himself in the ice-cream restaurant," information ministry spokesman Ismail Mukhtar Omar said.
