At least 10 people have been killed in a July 26 suicide bombing on the African Union's main peacekeeping base in Mogadishu, Somalia, police said.

Al Shabaab, the Al-Qaeda-affiliated militant group that is trying to topple the Western-backed Somali government, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group has been increasing its attacks ahead of planned elections in Somalia.
