The head of Somalia’s football association is among seven people killed in a suspected suicide blast in Mogadishu.

The Somali Prime Minister, Abdiweli Mohamed Ali, was also present when the attacker struck, but he was unhurt.

The theatre closed in the early 1990s as Somalia descended into civil war and was only reopened last month, amid a new period of relative stablity.

Said Mohamed Nur, was among a group of dignitaries who had gathered to mark the first anniversary of the launch of Somalia’s national television station.

The Prime Minitser blamed the attack on al-Shabab militants who, until their expulsion by troops from the African Union last year, had controlled large parts of the country.
