Explosions and gunfire have been heard as parliament in the Somali capital Mogadishu came under attack while MPs were meeting.

Eyewitnesses said several people had been killed in what police said was an attack by al-Shabab militants.

Somalia's first parliament of its own since the collapse of its government in 1992 was sworn in two years ago.

The fragile Somali government has been battling al-Shabab, which was pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011.
