At least 10 people died when two suicide car bombs rocked a government building in Somalia on Sunday, authorities said.
Most of the fatalities are students and local traders who were at a nearby market and school at the time of the blasts, police said.
Following the explosions in Galkayo town, attackers stormed the building and exchanged gunfire with security forces, according to local police official Abdi Hassan.
The attack targeted a government compound housing administrative offices, police said. Northern Galkayo is under Puntland control in a semiautonomous region in northeast Somalia.
