Suicide attackers have struck a popular hotel in the Somali capital Mogadishu, leaving 15 people dead.
Sunday’s fatalities reportedly included politicians, businessmen, other civilians and members of the security forces.
The death toll also includes the six attackers, senior security official Mohamed Hassan said.
The members of the Islamist group al-Shabaab arrived outside Hotel Sahafi in two vehicles packed with explosives, police representative Abdi Hassan said.
One of the vehicles rammed into a security wall and exploded, killing one of the attackers and several security guards.
