Mogadishu, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) At least 16 people were killed, including three policemen, after an assault by the radical group Al Shabaab against the Pearl Beach Hotel in this capital, an official report confirmed.

A police report indicates that, in last night’s attack, seven members of the violent Islamic group were eliminated by security forces, while six civilians and three policemen lost their lives. In addition, 10 people were wounded, Sonna news agency reported.

At the time of the assault by the fundamentalist group, 84 people were in the hotel, who were evacuated in time and were not injured, the Garowe news portal reported.

Apparently, due to suicide bombings, several explosions occurred in the Pearl Beach Hotel the day before and caused serious destruction. This facility is frequented by government officials, parliamentarians and politicians and is located in a protected area.

The property is located near the embassies of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, SNTV television channel said.
