The death toll from an al Shabaab car bomb attack on a hotel in the Somali capital on Wednesday has risen to 10 and is sure to increase further, police said.
"So far we know 10 people, mostly pedestrians and passengers on the road, died and over a dozen were injured," Major Ibrahim Hassan, a Mogadishu police officer, told Reuters.
"The death toll is sure to rise. We suspect the militants are inside the hotel because we do not see occupants coming out of it."
