MOGADISHU, Oct 29 – At least 25 people were killed and another 30 injured in a car bombing outside the popular Nasahablod 2 Hotel here Saturday, China’s Xinhua news agency reported. According to local police, 30 people, including a government minister, were rescued from the hotel as the gunfire continued between the extremists and security forces. The report said extremist group Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack.

The attack came just two weeks after more than 350 people were killed in a truck bombing on a busy Mogadishu street, the worst single explosion in the history of the Somali capital. A police officer who requested not to be named told Xinhua there were many casualties at the scene. A second blast went off shortly after the first in the same location. The attack happened as the country’s leaders converged in Mogadishu for a high-level security meeting which was scheduled to kick off on Sunday. — Bernama
