Mogadishu blast: 'Suicide attack' in Somali capital

Casualties are feared after a suspected suicide attack at a hotel in Mogadishu, reports from Somalia say.

Some reports say there was an initial blast inside Hotel Maka and shortly afterwards a car exploded just outside.

The hotel lies on one of the capital's main roads, which the authorities say is usually safe.

Islamist militant group al-Shabab was driven out of Mogadishu two years ago but often stages suicide attacks in the city.

The BBC's Ibrahim Mohamed Adan in Mogadishu says a loud explosion was heard in the city's administrative centre just before 20:00 local time (17:00 GMT).
