Al Shabaab attack Somalia hotels

By on July 10, 2015

Two hotels have been attacked in the Somali capital Mogadishu, followed by a sustained exchange of gunfire.
A police officer said four people had been killed.

The two hotels (Wehliya and Siyaad)-among the best known in the city- were busy with people breaking their Ramadan fast when they were attacked at 18:10 local time (15:10 GMT).

Islamist militant group al-Shabab has reportedly said it was behind the attack.

There was also a mortar attack on a base of the African Union (AU) force in the city at the same time.

The AU is helping the government battle al-Shabab, which is part of al-Qaeda.
