Somalia: Devout Muslims target government officials in hotel, kill 10 people

As the jihad death count rises, so do the shrill cries insisting that this has nothing to do with Islam. Fewer and fewer people believe that nonsense. But where is the politician who is going to stand up and speak the truth?

“Suicide attack targets Somali officials in hotel, kills 10 people,” by Abdi Sheikh and Feisal Omar, Reuters, February 20, 2015:

(Reuters) – Islamist rebels detonated a car bomb near a hotel in the Somali capital on Friday and then set off another bomb inside where politicians had gathered, killing at least 10 people including a lawmaker and lightly wounding two ministers.

Al Shabaab, which claimed responsibility for the attack, aims to topple the Western-backed federal government and impose its strict version of Islamic sharia law on the Horn of Africa nation that is struggling to rebuild after two decades of war.

The bombers targeted the Central Hotel around midday on Friday, typically a busy time for hotels as it is the Somali weekend. Ambulances wailed as they raced to the scene where a huge plume of smoke rose above the Indian Ocean coastal city.

“We are behind the attack,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s military operations spokesman, told Reuters. “We targeted government officials in the hotel; this is part of our operation in Mogadishu.”

The car bomb went off inside the Central Hotel compound which also houses a small mosque popular with government officials. Police said a suicide bomber ran into the mosque during Friday prayers and blew himself up.

“We are very sorry that the terrorists again attack Muslims in Friday prayer in a mosque in Central Hotel,” Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said in a statement. “We shall continue the fight against the terrorists.”

At least 10 people had been killed, including a lawmaker, security officers and civilians, said police Major Nur Mohamed. “But the death toll may rise,” he said.

Abdirisak Omar Mohamed, Somalia’s Internal Security Minister, told Reuters that it was unclear how a car laden with explosives managed to breach hotel security to park inside the compound. “(National intelligence) are going to interrogate the management of the hotel,” he said.

Farah Abdullahi, a police captain, said Deputy Prime Minister Mohamed Omar Arte and Ports and Marine Transport Minister Nur Farah Hirsi were lightly wounded in the attack….

    -There has been a lot of trouble with automobile gas and ignition systems, this could be the manufactures fault. From the photo it looks like a gas line, carburetor problem. A government panel will look into a possible malfunction and enforce a recall, fine or both. nothing to worry about here.-

    Our illustrious state department better get over there and provide jobs for the members of Al Shabaab, that way they will start being nice and quit blowing up their fellow muslims. Lord save us from the idiots running our government.
