Victims rescued from Somali hotel attack

Following the blasts, witnesses reported hearing gunfire and said the entire area around the Nasa Hablod Hotel 2 had been sealed off by security forces to keep people away. The dead also included a former politician, he said.

At least six people were killed and eight others injured in a vehicle bombing outside the popular Nasahablod 2 Hotel in Mogadishu on Saturday.

The attack comes two weeks after more than 350 people were killed in a massive truck bombing on a busy Mogadishu street-the country's worst-ever attack.

The Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shabaab claimed Saturday's bombings in a statement on its Andalus radio station, saying its fighters had forced their way into the hotel.

A suicide auto bomber first drove into a hotel where President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo was due to host a meeting on Saturday, following by a vehicle bombing near a former parliament building. The reporter said ambulances transported bodies and wounded people from the scene.

Witnesses then reported hearing shooting from inside the hotel.

Would they get back together? Rob maintains that he did not strike Chyna and only defended herself. He didn't stop there though, as she alleges he even broke her bedroom door in a fit of rage.

"We targeted ministers and security officials who were inside the hotel".

"Most people fled the hotel through a back door but some are still trapped inside", said Mohamed Dek, who was escaped the hotel after the initial explosion. Sporadic gunfire could be heard in the vicinity.

"I was very lucky", he added.

The Nasa Hablod 2 is a popular hotel located in the north of the city whose sister hotel, the Nasa Hablod, was hit by Shabaab militants in June 2016, in an attack that killed 11 people.

The attack happened as the country's leaders converged in Mogadishu for a high level security meeting following the October 14 truck bombing that killed more than 350 people. USA military officials and others in recent months have expressed concern that Somali forces are not yet ready.
