Deadly Blast in Djibouti

  • VOA News

Officials in Djibouti say two explosions have killed at least two people at a restaurant frequented by Westerners in the country's capital.

Few details were immediately confirmed. Police described a grenade attack while the country's Interior Ministry said it was carried out by suicide bombers.

Several people were also wounded in the Saturday attack at a downtown restaurant named Chaumiere.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Djibouti hosts French and U.S. military bases and has contributed troops to the African Union force fighting al-Shabab in neighboring Somalia.

Some information for this report comes from Reuters.
