Somalia: Bomb Blasts Kills 10 In Mogadishu

Explosions at a popular restaurant and hotel near the parliament building in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu have killed 15 people, police say.

The blasts hit the Village restaurant and Muna hotel. Both are popular with government workers and have been targeted before.

It was not clear who carried out the attacks, which appeared to tear much of the roof off the restaurant.

Somalia is battling an Islamist-led insurgency and high levels of crime.

Details on this story to follow shortly.
