MOGADISHU, Feb 13 (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded on Thursday near the entrance of Mogadishu's heavily guarded international airport where many foreign diplomats are based, a Reuters witness and police officer said.

Small tea shops outside the airport were on fire and the flesh of a corpse could be seen on the ground near the burning car, a Reuters photographer on the scene said. A police officer said the blast was caused by a car bomb. (Reporting by Feisal Omar and Abdi Sheikh; Writing by Drazen Jorgic; Editing by Edmund Blair)
