The death toll from a militant attack on a hotel in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu has risen to 28 and dozens have been wounded, according to officials.

Al Shabaab militants rammed a car bomb into the gate of the hotel before storming inside.

the assault on Wednesday morning began when attackers rammed an explosives-packed car into the gate of Dayah Hotel, which is near Somalia’s parliament in central Mogadishu, and then stormed inside exchanging gunfire with security guards.

A second massive car bomb blast went off after ambulances and journalists had arrived at the scene, leaving at least four reporters wounded.

“We have confirmed 28 people died and 43 others were injured in the two blasts at the hotel,” Abdikadir Abdirahman, director of the capital’s ambulance services, told Reuters news agency.
