A blast from a suicide car bombing in the Somali capital of Mogadishu has killed 34 and wounded at least 53.
Sunday's marketplace blast comes just days after the country elected a new president, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed.
"I was staying in my shop when a car came in into the market and exploded. I saw more than 20 people lying on the ground.
"Most of them were dead and the market was totally destroyed," witness Abdulle Omar said.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
At least 13 people have been killed after militants set off a car bomb at the gate of a hotel in Somalia and stormed inside.
Al Shabaab militants have said they are responsible for the incident, which happened in the capital Mogadishu.
Police officer Major Mohamed Ahmed told Reuters: "At least 13 people, including forces and civilians, died in two blasts at the hotel."
He added that a dozen others were injured and that the death toll could rise.
The death toll from Tuesday's car bomb attack near the presidential palace in Mogadishu has risen to 22, police have said.
The blast in the Somali capital was claimed by the Islamist militant group al Shabaab and partially destroyed two hotels - including one that was hosting a meeting of security officials.
Police officer Major Mohamed Abdullahi confirmed the death toll and said 50 people had been injured, including one minister and state journalists.
He said the SYL Hotel, which is often frequented by government officials and police, was the likely target.
At least six people are dead after a blast in the Somali capital Mogadishu, police have said.
The suspected bomb was in a vehicle parked near a popular hotel on a main thoroughfare running through the city.
Britain's ambassador to Somalia, Neil Wigan, reports that he heard a "major explosion" at Mogadishu International Airport.
Fifteen people have been killed in a suicide bomb and gun attack on an office of the United Nations Development Programme in the Somali capital Mogadishu - the first major assault on the UN by Somali Islamist militants in years.
The country's interior minister told reporters: "So far we have confirmed four UNDP foreign staff who were responsible for security, four Somali guards and seven militants."
A suicide bomber and several gunmen have attacked an office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the Somali capital Mogadishu, a senior police officer and a witness said.
"A suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of the UNDP and then several armed fighters went in and opened fire inside," Abdikadir Mohamed, a senior police official told Reuters.
The UNDP compound is several hundred metres from the city's fortified airport that serves as the main base for an African peacekeeping force battling Islamist militants in the Horn of Africa country.
A loud explosion has been heard near the Somali capital's heavily-fortified international airport followed by bursts of gunfire, a Reuters witness said.
A plume of thick black smoke billowed into the sky above Mogadishu, a city that has been dogged by suicide bomb attacks since al-Qaeda-linked militants were driven out almost two years ago.
Foreign Secretary William Hague said he "strongly condemns" the terrorist attacks that took place in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, killing at least 19 people.
Mr Hague said in a statement, “We extend our deepest sympathy to the victims and their families. Somalia is emerging from decades of conflict. The actions of terrorists only prolong the suffering of the Somali people".
“The UK and the international community, as we saw at last week’s G8 Foreign Ministers’ meeting, remain committed to helping the people of Somalia achieve peace, security and development", he continued.
"Those responsible for terrorist acts should face justice”, Mr Hague added.
At least 19 people have been killed in the Somali capital in a series of bomb attacks carried out by militants linked to al-Qaeda and in subsequent gun battles.
A bomb exploded outside law courts in Mogadishu as gunmen stormed the compound. Security forces then arrived and battled the fighters inside.
Later, a bomb exploded near an African Union and Turkish Red Crescent convoy on the way to the airport.
The attack has been claimed by al Shabaab - a militant group linked to al-Qaeda.
