BBC journalist's account of Somali blast

When a suicide attacker blew himself up at a graduation ceremony in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, the BBC's Mohammed Olad Hassan was sitting just a few feet away. He describes here the horror of what happened.
He writes: "Journalists were right at the front - I was sitting with my other BBC colleague in the second row, only about one metre away from the top table. People were making speeches and we were taking notes, as usual.
"Then all this brightness turned to darkness."
