Former Ottawa man among the dead from Somalia suicide attack

A former Ottawa man is among the dead in a suicide attack against the presidential palace in Somalia.

Foreign Affairs confirms Mohamoud Abdulle was a Canadian citizen.

He'd returned to his native Somalia to work with their prime minister.

Foreign Affairs is condemning today's violence where two government officials, praying worshippers and nine militant attackers died.

Al Shabaab - a group affiliated with Al Qaida - claims responsibility.
