    Al-Shabab has vowed to carry out more attacks in Mogadishu following a truck bomb blast that killed scores of people in the Somali capital.

    The warning came after the armed anti-government group claimed responsibility for Tuesday's blast outside a government compound in Mogadishu, which killed at least 70 people and left many others wounded, in one of the country's deadliest ever suicide attacks, officials and witnesses said.
