A police official says a suicide car bomber, targeting two pick-up trucks carrying Puntland Marine Forces in northern Somalia, has killed nine people and wounded 37 others.

Saeed Abdi, a senior police officer in Somalia's semi-autonomous region of Puntland, said Thursday that a woman and child were among those who were killed in the blast in the region's commercial hub of Bossaso.
