Al-Shabaab group, which is tied to al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for the attack, according to a statement posted on the SomaliMemo website belonging to the group.

The bomber, disguised as a police officer with hidden explosives strapped around his waist and torso, infiltrated Gen. Kahiye Police Academy and targeted officers gathering for special morning exercises, Capt. Mohamed Hussein said. On November 13, the Pentagon said USA forces had killed more than 40 Shabaab and Islamic State fighters over four days.

The bomber walked into the police academy undetected and joined a long line of officers in the rehearsal parade before he detonated the explosives under his sportswear, Hussein said.

The terrorist cell has carried out several bombings and other acts of violence in the Somali capital.

"We killed 27 police (officers) and injured more", Abdiasis Abu Musab, the group's military operations spokesman, told Reuters. Earlier this week, a drone strike against an Al Shabab vehicle carrying explosives prevented an "imminent threat to the people of Mogadishu", according to US Africa Command.

Al Shabaad have been fighting the United Nations-backed government and its African Union allies.

However, the group denied being behind a truck bomb attack in the city earlier in October that killed at least 358 people.

This includes partnering with the African Union Mission and Somali National Security Forces to target "terrorists, their training camps, and their safe havens throughout Somalia and the region".
