The strong alcohol smell consumes a hospital ward in the Somali capital where a suicide car bomber captured after he prematurely detonated an explosives-laden vehicle near Mogadishu beach is being treated, masking the bloody odor his bloodied head.

Baffled onlookers including security officials look on as the man with bandaged taped on his left eye lies on a bed, raising the likelihood that despite Islamic Ban on Alcohol, militants drug bombers before they carry out attacks.

“He’s still intoxicated.” A Somali intelligence official said of the bomber who shouted slurs at officials.
