MOGADISHU (HOL) – Two security guards at a hotel near the port of Mogadishu were killed Monday and unconfirmed number of people injured in a suicide bomb attack.
Police said a suicide bomber detonated a bomb after he was forced to stop as he tried to gain entry into Luul Yemani restaurant which is popular with government officials.
The attacker declined to stop and instead detonated his suicide vest leading to the casualties, police said.
The attack comes barely a month after another attack targeting the revenue office of the port which killed at least five people.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but the militant group al-Shabaab has conducted such attacks in the city.
