An MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft assigned to the 163d Attack Wing soars over Southern California skies on a training flight to March Air Reserve Base California on Sept. 15 2016. Tech. Sgt. Neil Ballecer  Air National Guard

Earlier, the head of a local ambulance service said they had moved the bodies of 13 victims as well as 15 injured people.

According to a Reuters report, the bomber was in police uniform and blew himself up inside the training camp.

Police were rehearsing for an upcoming parade commemorating the 74th anniversary of the creation of Somalia's police force when the bomber entered the General Kahiye Police Academy early Thursday disguised as a policeman.

Officers said the toll could have been far worse had the attacker detonated his bomb in the centre of the crowd.

Crytek is suing Star Citizen's developers over breach of contract
As we reported in 2016, CIG and RSI began selling two distinct games - Squadron 42 and the Star Citizen Persistent Universe. One of the complaints is that Cloud Imperium Games is using Lumberyard from Amazon, based on CryEngine.

The Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shabaab claimed responsibility and put the toll at 27 dead.

The accuracy appears in a statement which accounts for the air strike yesterday against "an Al Shabab vehicle carrying an explosive device" in an area southwest of this capital. It has been driven out of Mogadishu and most of the main towns it once controlled but remains a threat.

A United Nations report last month warned that an Islamic State faction in the north of the country had grown significantly over the past year, carrying out attacks in the Puntland region and receiving some funding from Syria and Iraq.

This includes partnering with the African Union Mission and Somali National Security Forces to target "terrorists, their training camps, and their safe havens throughout Somalia and the region".
