At least five people were killed in an attack on Saturday on a hotel in the Somali capital Mogadishu that was swiftly claimed by Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shabaab militants, police said.
"What we know is that there were at least five victims, including three security guards, and that six others were injured," police official Ibrahim Mohamed said.
The Shabaab group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement distributed through social networks online.
