Gunmen have forced their way into a hotel in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, a police official said.

A suicide bomber rammed his car into the SYL hotel’s entrance and then gunmen entered the premises after an exchange of gunfire with hotel guards, captain Mohamed Hussein said.

The SYL hotel, which is located across from the presidential palace in Mogadishu, is frequented by government officials and business executives.

The Islamic extremist al-Shabab group claimed responsibility for the attack.
