A suicide bomber stormed a restaurant in the Somalian capital Mogadishu on Thursday, killing one person and injuring eight, Sputnik reported.
The terrorist attack was allegedly carried out by a militant from the local jihadist group al-Shabab, China's Xinhua news agency said.
The attack took place as Mogadishu welcomed a delegation of the UN Security Council, who is visiting the country in a show of support for the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in August.
Somalia has been mired in an armed conflict with Islamist militants for two decades. Its government relies heavily on the African Union's peacekeepers for protection.
