A suicide bomber in police uniform blew himself up inside a police training camp in Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Thursday, killing at least three police officers, an official said. Witnesses said the police were gathered in a square ahead of their early morning parade when the bomber attacked in the capital Mogadishu.
Al-Shabaab group, which is tied to al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for the attack, according to a statement posted on the SomaliMemo website belonging to the group. The officers were rehearsing for Somalia's Police Day celebrations scheduled for December 20, Hussein said.
"He wanted to inflict a maximum damage", said Omar.
Al-Shabab, which is allied to al-Qaida, carries out frequent bombings and attacks against hotels, checkpoints and other high-profile areas of Mogadishu. 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 U.S. has carried out at least 32 drone strikes this year against al-Shabab and a small but growing number of fighters linked to the Islamic State group, many of them defectors from al-Shabab. On November 13, the Pentagon said USA forces had killed more than 40 Shabaab and Islamic State fighters over four days.
Al Shabab is waging an insurgency against the UN-backed government and its African Union allies in a bid to topple the weak administration.
