Minneapolis (CNN) --The FBI is investigating reports that a suicide bomber who killed two African Union soldiers in Mogadishu, Somalia, this week was an American citizen, an FBI spokesman said Thursday.
"We're aware of the bomb that went off in Somalia and we have folks over there and are working with people over there to try to identify the bomber or bombers," said Steve Warfield, a spokesman for the FBI regional office in Minneapolis. "We don't know if there's any (tie) to Minnesota, and we won't know the answer to that until we have official confirmation of who that bomber is."
According to the African Union, several "extremist insurgents" had disguised themselves as Somali government forces in order to attack an African Union post.
