An attack and a bomb attack on a hotel in Somalia killed at least twelve people on Friday. According to the police, the death toll can still rise. The al-Shabaab terrorist movement claimed responsibility for the attack.

A suicide bomber blew himself up at the hotel in the port city of Kismayo in southern Somalia after which a group of armed men stormed the hotel.

There was a meeting with politicians at the hotel. Among the dead would be a well-known Somali activist. Two reporters also died. Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire condemned the attack.

Al-Shabaab, which has links with Al Qaeda, often commits attacks in Somalia. The terrorist organization fights for supremacy in the country in the Horn of Africa and wants to establish a radical Islamic form of government there.

In 2011, Al-Shabaab was expelled from the Somali capital Mogadishu. A year later the same terrorist group happened in Kismayo.
