Kismayo Attack: Consequences of an assault that killed dozens


At least 26 people, including journalists and several foreigners, died in the attack at the Asasey Hotel in the southern Somali city of Kismayo.

A suicide bomber rammed a car containing explosives in hotels and gunmen then took the building by assault.

The Islamist group al-Shabab has claimed the attack, the worst to hit Kismayo since they were forced to leave in 2012.
