Popular beachfront restaurants have been hit by car bombs and gunmen in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

According to foreign media, the first car bomb went off in the early evening, followed soon after by five gunmen approaching from the beach.

A second car bomb went off half an hour later.

Reports claim that at least three people have died while the toll is feared to rise.

The Somali Prime Minister, Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, has condemned the attack referring it as "barbaric".
