20 killed in Somalia car bomb blasts

After the three explosions in front of the hotel, a fourth blast hit as medics attempted to rescue the injured.

The suicide bombs detonated near the perimeter wall of the Sahafi Hotel, which is located across the street from the Somali Police Force’s Criminal Investigations Department.

Earlier Somali security forces shot dead four gunmen who tried to storm through a hole blown into the hotel’s wall but did not succeed in entering.

Somalia’s Islamic extremist rebels, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the blasts.
