Militant Assault in Somali Capital Kills 5

Somali forces are still battling militants who launched a deadly assault on the main court complex in Somalia's capital Mogadishu Sunday.

Authorities say the militants dressed in Somali military uniforms stormed the main court building and starting shooting at the security guards on duty. Witnesses then say they heard two explosions.

Officials have confirmed five dead so far, but it is not clear if any of the militants are among the casualties.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, most militant attacks in the Somali capital are blamed on fighters of al-Shabaab, the al-Qaida-linked Islamist extremist rebel group that operates in the country.
