Another attack by militants of the Al-Shabab group, which previously announced its links with Al-Qaeda (banned in the Russian Federation), was committed in the African state of Somalia. By and large, Somalia has long ceased to exist as a single independent state. The official authorities barely control the central territories.


According to the information agency Associated Press, the terrorists carried out an attack on the Dayah hotel in Mogadishu (the capital of Somalia). At the same time, the terrorist attack consisted of several episodes. The first was to undermine a car bomb. The second - in the breakthrough of terrorists in the building of the hotel and shooting at its staff and guests. At the same time, after the explosion from the building of the hotel, virtually one core remained.

It is known that at the time of the attack in the hotel were representatives of the official Somali parliament.

According to preliminary data, at least 15 people died, several dozen were injured. Among the injured are 10 journalists. Is there among the dead and wounded foreign nationals, not yet reported.

After the explosion, a fire broke out that spread to the shopping center adjacent to the hotel. Taking advantage of the situation, a considerable number of local residents, instead of taking part in extinguishing a fire or proceeding to a safe place, took various goods out of the supermarket.

In social networks it is reported that the shootout in the Dayai hotel area continues. The number of victims of a terrorist attack in connection with this may increase.

    Democratic ...
    Is the UN doing something? Or if there are no traces of "Russian hackers" then you shouldn't "get dirty"?

        I had 502 and some other dregs, error in general. Their server was probably buggy.
        And about Mogadishu ... what can you say, as soon as we "out of there" got out and "went and went" and the UN here, judging by everything, can not do anything.

          I translated, there were too many connections, it looks like an attack, although there were 502 too.

          And what did we do there?))) In Africa, we provided assistance to Ethiopia in the war with the Somalis, which ultimately ended in victory for the Ethiopians! The reason for the mess was the idea of ​​creating a "Greater Somalia", when under one roof the Somalis decided to gather all the former Somali colonies of Europe, some of which were on the territory of Ethiopia. Since then, the mess has not ended there ... So the factor of our presence in the process "off and on" is minimal.

    And in Africa it’s the same ... They didn’t write which citizens of which countries were at the hotel, ours or not ...?
