Terrorists Attack Hotel in Mogadishu,14 Fatalities so far

Somali officials are saying a group of gunmen have forced their way inside of a hotel in the city of Mogadishu.

A terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

From BBC:

Militants have stormed a hotel in the Somali capital Mogadishu, leaving at least nine people dead, in an attack claimed by al-Shabab.

The attackers set off a car bomb outside the heavily fortified Somali Youth League hotel before moving in.

An explosion also targeted a popular park known as the Peace Garden. Police say the attack is now over after they shot and killed four attackers.

Al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda affiliate, is waging an armed insurgency in Somalia.

The hotel, situated near the presidential palace, is popular with government personnel.​

Additional details from the New York Times indicate a total of 14 dead altogether :

A Somali police official says Shabab gunmen forced their way into a hotel in the Somali capital, exchanging fire with hotel guards before government security forces ended the attack. Five militants and at least nine civilians were reported killed.​

Horrible.

This is further proof that radical Islam is a force of evil and darkness that continues to plague the world. I sincerely hope leaders around the globe start waking up to reality and take steps to shut down groups like this and keep them from carrying out their dark deeds.
