The spokesperson for the Somalia's government, Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimuu was wounded on Sunday after an alleged suicide bomb attack happened in Mogadishu.

The prime minister's office confirmed the attack and in a statement, added that the spokesman's wounds were not so severe.

According to Africanews, a local witness who described the attack said, "We heard a big explosion that threw me up and then I fell to the ground abruptly. I don’t know who was killed, but I saw human flesh from the blast scene flying past us."

The Al-Shabaab terrorist group later claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.

Somalia has been under pressure as of late, with repeated delays of parliamentarian elections.

The bomb attack came after Somali leaders agreed to wrap up elections by February 25.

Somalia's President, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, has been at loggerheads with the nation's prime minister over the long-delayed elections.
