At least 15 people, including four foreigners, have been killed in an assault by militant Islamists on a UN office in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, a government minister says.

The gun-battle inside the office lasted for more than an hour, witnesses said.

A cameraman outside the UN Development Programme office told the BBC a suicide bomber blew up a car at its entrance and he saw four gunmen enter.

The al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab said it was behind the attack.
