Suicide bombers from militant group Al Shabaab detonated two vehicles laden with explosives Tuesday near the airport in Mogadishu, Somalia, killing at least 12 people, the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) said in a statement.
The attack occurred Tuesday morning near the perimeter of Aden Adde International Airport in the Somalian capital, in the vicinity of UN and African Union bases.

Government spokesman Abdifitah Omar Halane told that at least 13 people were killed and 19 wounded, and that security forces and private security guards were among the dead.
