Suicide car bombers kill at least 17 in Somalia

Suicide attackers set off two car bombs at a hotel near the headquarters of Somalia’s Criminal Investigations Department in Mogadishu, killing at least 17 people. Guards at Hotel Sahafi and CID officers opened fire after the blasts. Then, about 20 minutes later, a third explosion hit the busy street. A Reuters photographer at the scene saw 20 bodies of civilians and several burnt-out shells of mini-buses, motor-bikes and private saloon cars.Mohammed Hussein, a police officer, told that the target of the attack was Hotel Sahafi, which is just opposite the CID office.No group immediately claimed responsibility, but Islamists from the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab group have mounted regular attacks in the capital.
