A suspected suicide bomber rammed into the entrance of a hotel in the center of the Somali capital, Mogadishu, on Wednesday, police and witnesses said.

Bursts of gunfire followed the attack, which targeted the Posh Hotel - the only venue with a discotheque in the capital - according to a Reuters witness.

"The suicide car bomb targeted its entrance. There is gunfire inside the hotel. But I am not sure if fighters are inside," said Moahmed Hussein, a police officer told Reuters.
