Mogadishu - At least one person was killed when a bomb went off outside a school in northern Somalia on Friday, while a separate blast killed one person in the capital Mogadishu.

The first explosion took place outside Yameys Secondary School in the town of Galkayo in Somalia's volatile Puntland State, about 750km north of Mogadishu.

Two Kenyan and three Somali nationals, who worked as teachers at the school, were wounded, according to Puntland officials.

In a separate attack, one person was killed by a car bomb in Mogadishu's Hodan district, police officer Mohamed Dahir told dpa.

"It is hard to identify him. So far we know that the driver was a male person," said Dahir.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks.
