Suicide bombers killed at Somalian assembly meet venue
Mogadishu, Aug 1 (IANS) At least two suicide bombers were shot dead in Mogadishu when they approached a venue of the Somalia's National Constituent Assembly meeting Wednesday.
A policeman was also injured at the convention expected to vote on a draft constitution for the country, Xinhua quoted a police official as saying.
"The two men who tried to force their way into a checkpoint at the entrance of the venue were shot and the incoming bullets detonated their explosives, one police officer was wounded in the blast," said Mohyadeen Farah.
Unable to get inside the meeting area, the two bombers used false identification papers to get into the venue where 825 delegates were meeting to vote on the constitution.
Somali government officials, however, said the vote on the new draft constitution for the country would be held as planned.
