25 people dead in Friday’s al-Shabab attack on Somali hotel

Twenty-five people were killed and 40 wounded in suicide attacks at a hotel in Somalia’s capital on Friday, the Somali government said Saturday. One Islamic extremist rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the gate of the Central Hotel, and another went in and blew himself up, a statement from Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke’s office said. Government officials were meeting at the Central Hotel at the time, and the statement said Mogadishu’s deputy mayor and two legislators were among the dead. It was unclear whether the government’s report of 25 dead included the two bombers.
