MOGADISHU (Reuters) - A roadside bomb exploded in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Tuesday but caused no casualties, police said.

A police officer at the scene who did not wish to be named said the blast had occurred on a road frequently used by public service minibuses near the Somali International University.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the blast.

Bombings are a near-daily occurrence in the Somali capital. Most are claimed by the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab, which is fighting to overthrow the U.N.-backed government and drive out the African Union peacekeeping force supporting it.
