By The Associated Press

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) ' The president of Somalia's Olympic committee and the head of its national soccer federation have been killed in a suicide bomb blast.

Football federation secretary Shafici Mohyadin says the two died in a blast at the newly reopened national theater during a ceremony Wednesday in Mogadishu.

The International Olympic Committee says it is "shocked" by the news and condemns the "act of barbarism" that killed Somali Olympic Committee president Aden Yabarow Wiis and football federation chief Said Mohamed Nur.

Ali Muse, the head of Mogadishu's ambulance service, says at least 10 people were killed and dozens wounded in the blast.
