Two vehicle bombs exploded Friday in Mogadishu, the Somali capital, killing at least 18 people, the head of an ambulance service said.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on its Andalus radio station.

The Aamin Ambulance service ferried 18 bodies and another 20 injured people after the blasts, director Abdirahman Abdulqadir told the AP.

The bombings targeted the presidential palace and a city hotel, police said.

At least 22 people were killed in an attack by Islamist militant group al-Shabaab in Mogadishu on Friday, security officials and medical sources said.

Adan's casualty totals came from the site of the first blast, near Somalia's intelligence headquarters in the city's Abdulaziz neighborhood.

Twin auto bombs were used in the attack near the Somali capital's presidential palace, which was followed by a fierce gun battle between the attackers and the security forces.

Internal Security Minister Mohamed Abukar Islow confirmed that security forces killed five al-Shabaab attackers after an hour-long battle near the presidential palace.

"The security forces foiled the intent of the terrorists".

Only a few attacks since September 11 have killed more people.

Ambulances rushed to the scene as security forces sealed off the area.

In the wake of that attack Somalia's government declared a fresh offensive against the group and United States drone strikes have increased in frequency.

While the militant group was pushed out of the capital in 2011 by an African Union force it continues to control large parts of the countryside and launches regular attacks on government, military and civilian targets.
