Many civilians have been killed in similar shootings.

"More than 10 people died in the blast which was carried out by the Shabaab group and nine others are wounded", said security ministry spokesman Ahmed Mohamud Mohamed.

A column of white smoke was seen above the capital with houses near the attack rattled by the explosion.

The youth say they want Pizza House, Mogadishu's premier Pizza restaurant, up and running by Eid day.

"We heard a huge explosion in Wadajir district, there are some casualties, but the number is unknown", Abifutah Omar Halane, the spokesman for Mogadishu's mayor told Reuters.

At least 10 people have been killed in a auto bomb attack in the Somali capital Mogadishu that targeted a government building and was claimed by Islamist insurgents, a government official said. The primary aim of the group is to force out African Union peacekeepers, topple the Western-backed government and impose its strict version of Islam.

Many government officials, wealthy individuals and foreigners drive around Mogadishu with squads of armed bodyguards who are frequently nervy and trigger-happy.

It is now battling militant Islamists from the al-Shabab group, which is affiliated to al-Qaeda.

At least 25 people mostly civilans were killed when a VBIED rammed into the popular eatery and gunmen shot out indiscriminately at patrons who were having an Iftaar dinner.

In an attack last week, al Shabaab fighters killed at least 19 people in a vehicle bomb and gun attack on a hotel and nearby restaurant in Mogadishu.
