At least four people were killed in the siege of a Mogadishu hotel occupied by Al-Shabaab jihadist fighters since Sunday evening. This was reported by Somali security sources. The jihadist group Al Shabaab attacked a hotel near the presidential palace in the capital late Sunday afternoon, a hotel frequented by ministers, government officials and parliamentarians and where shots were heard this morning. It is not clear the number of terrorists who stormed the Villa Rose hotel, located in the center of the capital and which is in any case equipped with strong security measures, the scene of the assault by the ‘leatherheads’ in these hours. “The terrorists are locked in a room of the building, we are going to end the operation in a very short time,” added the source.
