At least 10 people died including pedestrians who happened to be near higher ministry building during the attack and more than this sustained injuries.
Reports indicate that some of the ministry’s officials got injured.
Suspected Al-Shabab gunmen stormed Ministry’s building in Mogadishu on Tuesday after two car bomb detonated.
Al-Shabab group has claimed credit for Tuesday’s attack.
“We are inside and fighting goes on,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s military operations spokesman, told Reuters after attackers set off two blasts before gunmen stormed inside.
