At least 25 people have died in a suicide attack in Somalia.

The bomb detonated in a military training facility in the capital, Mogadishu, army sources told AP, and all the victims were said to be soldiers. More than 40 people were injured in the attack.

Labeled as a terrorist, al-Shabab, which has carried out acts of terror against the internationally recognized Somali government for the past 15 years, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
