At least two people were killed in an attack on Sahafi Hotel in Somali’s capital Mogadishu this morning.

Two car bombs were set off at the main gate after which the attackers stormed into the hotel exchanging gunfire with the security guards.

The death toll is likely to rise as the exchange of fire between the police personnel and attackers is still on.

Police officer Major Osman Ali told Reuters that the attackers are attacking the police personnel from the rooftop of the hotel.

No militant group has claimed responsibility of the attack so far.
