The blast hit a tea stand in front of the police station where new recruits are trained in the Abdi Aziz district of Mogadishu.

The police station is near the popular Lido beach, which was the scene of another al-Shahab attack in January, in which up to 20 people were killed.

In the January attack, suicide bombers stormed the Beach View Hotel, after which several al-Shabab fighters opened fire at the hotel.
