Militants Attack Hotels In Somalia, 5 People Killed

At least five people were killed when militants in the Somali capital Mogadishu attacked two hotels.

A security operation has now ended at one of the hotels, near the parliament building.

According to BBC reports, the two hotels were busy with people breaking their Ramadan fast when they were attacked at 18:10 local time.

The Islamist militant group al-Shabab has said it was behind the attack.

Our reporter says the two hotels - the Wehliya and Siyaad - are among the best known in the city.

The Siyaad is near the presidential palace, while the Wehliya is close to parliament.
