At least 6 people have been killed and several others wounded in a massive car bomb attack outside a hotel in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu on Thursday afternoon, Garowe Online reports.

Eyewitnesses said a car laden with explosives went off outside Wehliye hotel along the busy Makka Al Mukarama road in the capital which is lined with government offices, hotels, and restaurants.

The death is likely to rise as many of the wounded are in critical condition and taken to the hospitals, according to a Police officer Liban Abdi who spoke to GO by phone from the scene.

The explosion was caused by an explosives-laden vehicle parked outside the hotel which is popular with Somalia’s elite, politicians, civil servants, and security personnel.
