Blast hits Somali refugee camp shortly after UN-escorted visit

Refugee camp in Mogadishu

An explosion at a refugee camp in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, on Thursday has killed up to 7 people according to initial reports.

The blast came just hours after the UN had escorted a group of local and foreign journalists to view a feeding centre there.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility.

Dianne Penn spoke to Ari Gaitanis from the UN humanitarian affairs office (OCHA) who accompanied the journalists.
