The governor of Hiran, where Beledweyne town is located, Mr Omar Ibrahim Adan Badiyow, told the media that the incident occurred in front of a popular tea shop near the headquarter of the regional administration known as Gobolka.
Local residents said the bomb detonator had visited Beledweyne several times before finally exploding his device under a tree, next to the tea shop.
It was the second suicide mission in the south-central regions of Somalia in three days.
