More than 10 people were also wounded in the blast near a military base, Dahir Amin Jesow told Reuters over the phone from Baladweyne.

No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts but suspicion will likely fall on the militant group al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda affiliate which has carried out a campaign of suicide bombings since African Union forces forced it to withdraw from the city in 2011.
