Mogadishu Hotel Targeted By Bombs, At Least 11 Killed

by Wochit 0:41 mins

Three bombs exploded within an hour outside a hotel frequented by government officials in a heavily fortified district of the Somali capital on Wednesday, killing at least 11 people. The attacks on the Jazira hotel underscore the security challenges facing President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, whose election by lawmakers last year was hailed by many as a way to end two decades of conflict. The first two bombs came in quick succession and were followed by heavy bursts of gunfire by Somali security forces. At least one of the first two bombs appeared to be a suicide bomber, police said.
