At least five people were killed on Tuesday in Somalia, when jihadists detonated a suicide car bomb outside a popular hotel close to the presidential palace in the capital Mogadishu.

Police added that 10 others were wounded. The Al-Qaeda-aligned Shabaab jihadists claimed responsibility for the attack, saying they targeted the hotel because it "is close to the presidential palace, and also home to apostates and unbelievers".
