Somalia: At least 10 dead in twin bomb blast in central Mogadishu

At least ten people were killed and dozens more were injured after two bombs exploded near a hotel in the centre of Mogadishu on Saturday, just two weeks after a massive blast killed more than 350 people. The first blast happened outside the Naasa Hablood Two Hotel where President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo was reportedly set to host a meeting the same day. Gunfire was also heard coming from... Еще inside the hotel, according to police. A second blast was heard in the area minutes after the first. Locals and paramedics were seen carrying injured people from the scene. Al-Shabaab militants said they carried out the attack. The group was ousted from Mogadishu in 2011 and have been losing territory ever since, but their capacity to launch large bomb attacks has continued. Al-Shabaab's troop strength was estimated at 7,000 to 9,000 militants in 2014, and is engaged in combat against the Federal Government of Somalia and the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM).
