A blast at a military base in the Somali capital Mogadishu has killed at least eight people and injured 1

4 others, a military official said.

It was not yet clear what caused the blast, but witnesses told local media that a car loaded with explosives attacked the compound near a stadium.

Radio Dalsan said the blast could be heard throughout the city.

The Islamist militant group Al-Shabab often carries out bombings targeting security forces and government officials.

Earlier this week, two security guards were killed after they stopped a suicide bomber from entering a restaurant in the capital.
