A suicide bomber disguised as a regular soldier attacked a military base, killing at least one solider and leaving many injured.
At least one soldier has been killed and six others injured in Somalia when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a military base in the west of the capital Mogadishu.
Somalia's Al Qaeda-allied group al Shabab claimed responsibility for the bombing on Sunday.
The suicide bomber had disguised himself as a regular soldier and joined others as they filed into a military base before he detonated the explosive, Captain Aden Omar, a soldier at the military base said.
"We lost one soldier and several others were injured. The bomber blew up himself at a check point," he said.
