Twenty-six people have been confirmed dead, along with two American citizens, after an attack on a hotel in Kismayo, Somalia. Witnesses say a suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into the lobby of the Asasey hotel, detonated it, and allowed other gunmen to storm the building. Terrorists took control of the hotel, killing everyone in sight. "There is chaos inside, I saw several dead bodies carried from the scene, and people are fleeing from the nearby buildings," one witness told the BBC. It took Somali military forces several hours to eliminate the terrorist threat.
