Mogadishu, Somalia (CNN) — A car packed with explosives sped into a United Nations convoy near Mogadishu airport Wednesday morning, claiming at least four lives in the ensuing explosion, police said.

Three of the dead were civilians; one was a security force member, said Police Col. Mohamed Hassan.

“I saw at least two dead bodies lying in a pool of blood on the ground and police arrived soon at the area and began shooting in the air to disperse the crowds,” a witness named Sharma’arke said by phone from the scene.
