2 dead in explosion at Somali warlord's palace
MOGADISHU, 22 JUNE 2003 (ABC)--Two people have been killed and scores more wounded in a large explosion at the former presidential palace in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

The cause of the explosion is still unknown, but neighbours said it was the loudest blast heard in Mogadishu in the 11 years since US operations in the country in 1992.

The palace is now the compound of warlord Hussein Mohamed Aidid.

He was nott there at the time - he is one of 360 Somali warlords and civic groups attending ceasefire talks in Kenya.
