Somalia: At least 29 dead as hotel siege ends after ‘hellish’ gun battle

(Worthy News) – The government has sacked two security officials over their failure to prevent repeated attacks in Somalia’s capital.

Islamist group al Shabaab claimed responsibility for this weekend’s terrorist attack, broadcasting a statement on its Andalus radio station saying its “Mujahedeen fighters” were targeting “apostate officials”.

Police described a “hellish” gun battle on Saturday night as security forces stormed the building, with one officer confirming there were at least 29 deaths this morning and warning the number may rise. [ Source: Sky News (Read More…) ]
