Bombs kill at least 7 in Mogadishu

That attack also began when a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden vehicle outside the hotel which was then stormed by gunmen, provoking an assault that lasted several hours and only ended when special forces killed three attackers inside.

As night fell, sporadic gunfire could be heard around the hotel as both soldiers and ambulances responded to the attack.

"About 14 people, majority civilians, were confirmed dead so far and the security forces are still working to ensure the area is clear", said security official Mohamed Moalim Adan.

At least three people were killed in twin auto bombings in the Somali capital on Saturday that were claimed by Shabaab Islamists, police and medics said.

Other victims included a senior Somali police colonel, a former lawmaker and a former government minister.

"We can hear the gunfire but it is hard to know who is fighting, the forces cordoned off the building and no-one can go close to it", said a witness called Abdulahi Nure.

In a written statement, the ministry said on its website: "We strongly condemn this heinous terrorist attack".

Islamist group al-Shabab, responsible for scores of such attacks in the country's long civil war, said it carried out Saturday's bombings.

The group is believed to be behind a Mogadishu truck bomb attack two weeks ago that killed more than 350 people.

Witnesses said gunmen are fighting inside.
