The Shabaab has been fighting to overthrow successive internationally-backed governments in Mogadishu since 2007 and frequently deploys vehicle and truck bombs against military, government and civilian targets.

Earlier, it was reported that 13 were killed and 15 had been injured.

Al-Shabab has converted itself into the deadliest Islamic extremist group in the African continent. In October, a huge truck bombing blamed on the Shabaab killed as many as 512 people, levelling buildings in the capital's busy Kilometre 5 neighbourhood.

The group, which is allied to Al-Qaeda, is waging an insurgency against the UN-backed government and its African Union allies in a bid to topple the weak administration and impose its own strict interpretation of Islam.

"This strike supports our partner forces by removing an imminent threat to the people of Mogadishu", according to the statement.
