At least five people have been killed and 13 injured after a car bomb exploded near a police station in Somalia's capital.
 
The explosion near Waberi police station on the busy Maka Almukarramah Road in Mogadishu may have been a suicide bomber, police said.


Most of the victims were civilians and an eyewitness said he heard a huge explosion from the apartment he was staying in near Maka Almukarramah.


At the blast scene, rescue workers and civilians carried bloodied bodies and injured victims to hospitals.
 
 
Police say the exact target of the blast is not clear.


The explosion ended a month of relative calm in the city, which is often a target for the extremist group al-Shabab.
