The Turkish Embassy in Somalia revealed that four people who were injured in the bombing were Turkish citizens, Hurriyet reports.

“We heard a huge blast and soon clouds of smoke into the air. Before the blast, several Turkish engineers and well armed convoy of Somali police were at the scene,” eyewitness Farah Abdullahi told Reuters.

“We see casualties being carried but we cannot make if they are dead or injured.”

Turkish workers are helping build roads in Somalia. A group of engineers was among those hit in a blast at a checkpoint in Mogadishu that killed at least 90 people in December.
