At least 11 people, including six soldiers, were killed in Somalia on Friday by a remote-controlled bomb in a busy restaurant in the capital, Mogadishu.

The restaurant is near a military base, where salaries had just been paid.

The BBC reports the owner of the restaurant was among the dead, along with her husband and son.

The al-Shabaab group is suspected of planting the bomb.
