Gunmen were holding at least 20 people hostage in a restaurant in Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Thursday, police said, after a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle next door and militants stormed inside in an attack claimed by Islamist al Shabaab militants, APA reports quoting Reuters.
Security forces fatally shot two gunmen who were holding hostages inside of the Pizza House restaurant, a popular eatery in the Somali capital.
Witnesses said the gunmen entered Posh Treats and proceeding to Pizza House where they put up a fierce resistance against the security forces who were trying to end the siege.
But military efforts to regain control of the Pizza House restaurant were slowed by the darkness of night, forcing soldiers to wait until morning, Police Captain Mohamed Hussein said.
Al-Shabab terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
The statement did not specify the extent of damage or say if there had been casualties.
Mogadishu ambulance services said they evacuated 26 people wounded in the attack. Inside the building, the body of a Syrian man who worked as a chef at restaurant lay near the rubble of a blood-spattered and bullet-marked wall.
All five attackers were killed and after dawn the soldiers secured the building, said senior Somali police office Capt. Mohamed Hussein. Numerous restaurant's workers are foreigners, mostly from Ethiopia.
The Somalia-based extremist group al-Shabab often targets high-profile areas of Mogadishu, including hotels, military checkpoints and areas near the presidential palace. "The operation goes on", Abdiasis Abu Musab, the group's military spokesman, told Reuters.
