At least 80 people have been killed in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu.
The blast took place at a checkpoint at a busy intersection in Mogadishu.
More than 90 people were also injured.
Al-shababi militants are yet to claim responsibility but the network has been carrying out uch attacks in the capital city Mogadishu.
President Mohammed Abdullahi Farmaajo said the attack aims at demoralising Somali people insisting jihadists would never stop the country rebuilding.
For more than a decade, Al-Shabab an Islamist militant network allied to Al-Qaeda has waged an insurgency.
It was forced out of the capital in 2011 but still controls areas of the country.
“All I could see was scattered dead bodies amid the blast and some of them burnt beyond recognition,” said Sakariye Abdukadir.
“May Allah have mercy on the victims of this barbaric attack,” the former internal security minister Mohammed Abdirizak added.
