MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A bomb exploded Monday on a bus carrying U.N. employees in northern Somalia, killing at least 10 people and wounding many others, police and U.N. officials said. The al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the group's Andalus radio.

Both foreigners and Somalis were casualties of the attack in Garowe, the capital of the semiautonomous Puntland region, Col. Ali Salad, a senior police officer in Puntland, told The Associated Press by phone.
