Gunmen storm Somalia hotel after car bombing

GUNMEN stormed an upscale beachfront hotel in Somalia’s capital today after a car bombing outside, in an attack reminiscent of those carried out by Al-Shabaab militants, a police officer and witnesses told AFP.

The government did not immediately provide information on casualties, but Aamin Ambulance, a Mogadishu-based private service, reported that 28 people were wounded.
