BOSASSO, Somalia, Dec 5 (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded in the northern Somali city of Bosasso on Thursday, witnesses said.

There was no immediate word on casualties. Witnesses said the blast targeted a convoy carrying security forces from the semi-autonomous Puntland region, where Bosasso is located.
