Three arrests for Mogadishu car attack

A German news agency reports that police in Somalia have arrested three people in connection with yesterday's attack on a car carrying Swedish politicians in Mogadishu.

Security forces are looking for two more people they believe to have planned the attack, reports news agency DPA. Late Thursday, several spokespersons for the Swedish Foreign Ministry and the Left Party told news agency TT that they had not heard reports that any arrests have been made.

In the attack, the Left Party's Abdirahim Hassan from Husby was shot to death, while the party's group leader in Stockholm, Ann-Margarethe Livh, received gunshot wounds.
