Teenage rebellion, jihadi style.

(BBC) — Somali Interior Minister Abdi Shakur Sheikh Hassan has been killed in a suicide attack at his home in the capital, Mogadishu.

Officials say the bomber was his own teenage niece, who had joined the Islamist militant group al-Shabab.

The group said it carried out the attack and said more would follow.

The attack against Sheikh Hassan was the third suicide attack in Mogadishu in three weeks.

His niece had visited his home several times in recent days and the guards did not carry out a security check.

She walked into the home, set off the bomb, and was killed instantly.
