A car bomb near a police station in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, killed 11 people and wounded 16 more on Saturday, local officials said. "The whole market is ruined and people perished. The death toll is sure to rise," said police Colonel Abdikadir Farah. Though no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, this sort of violence is typical of al Shabaab, an Islamic extremist group that seeks to overthrow the Somali government. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud recently visited a university in the neighborhood where the bomb exploded.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell died Sunday at his Nashville home, his wife said in a statement posted on his website. He was 74. A skilled songwriter whose work defied the limitations of genre, Russell collaborated with a wide range of musicians over his long career, from B.B. King to Willie Nelson to Elton John. "He was my biggest influence as a piano player, a singer, and a songwriter," John said. A native of Oklahoma, Russell suffered a heart attack in July and had recently undergone heart surgery. He passed away in his sleep.
