Suspected Islamists attack Somali hotel, kill at least two
By Abdi Sheikh and Feisal Omar MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Two bombs ripped into a hotel in the center of the Somali capital on Sunday morning and police fought suspected Islamist gunmen who stormed inside the building, police and witnesses said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility after the explosions, but police blamed the Islamist militant group al Shabaab, which has frequently launched attacks in Mogadishu. The incident mirrored tactics used before by al Shabaab, in which it detonates bombs to break through security at targets and then sends in fighters.
