Gunmen open fire at Somali beach

A car bomb has exploded and gunmen are shooting at a beach in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, the BBC's Ibrahim Aden reports from the city.

The attack is happening at the popular Lido beach, which is lined with several restaurants.
A vehicle rammed into the entrance of one of the restaurants, exploding at about 19:30 local time (16:30 GMT) - and up to five gunmen approached from a different direction shooting at those relaxing on the beach.
People tend to sit out in front of the restaurants.
Our reporter says a police operation is continuing - and there is no information about casualties.
