At least 10 killed in bomb, gun attack on Somalia hotel

Global Affairs Canada says it is aware of the bombings but couldn't confirm the identities of the victims.

Nalayeh's reporting often profiled trailblazing Somalis and people with heartwarming stories, such as a group of female entrepreneurs or a single mother of five who adopted a toddler.

Somali-Canadian journalist Hodan Nalayeh was killed in an attack on a hotel in Somalia on Friday.

A huge explosion, followed by gunfire, was heard at a hotel in Somalia's port city of Kismayu, Reuters has reported, citing a local police officer. He said gunfire is continuing inside the hotel.

Authorities said a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle loaded with explosives into the popular Medina hotel in the southern town of Kismayo before several heavily armed gunmen forced their way inside, shooting as they went.

Regional politicians and clan elders were inside the hotel.

"There is chaos inside, I saw several dead bodies carried from the scene and people are fleeing from the nearby buildings", added Muktar. "We control the hotel now".

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

Nalayeh, a resident of Vaughan, Ont., is the founder of Integration TV, a weekly television show that aired on OMNI TV and shared inspiring and uplifting stories of the Somali community from both inside Somalia and in the larger diaspora.

Nur was referring to elections in the city due sometime in August.

"She was an wonderful person with an fantastic heart", said Mohamed Gialo, a close friend of Nalayeh, who said she helped find his daughter employment after his daughter graduated university.

"Hodan made immeasurable contributions to the Canadian Somali community", said Immigration Minister to Ahmed Hussen in a statement to the Star.

Al-Shabaab was ejected from Mogadishu in 2011 and has since been driven from most of its other strongholds. The city's port had been a major source of revenue for the group from taxes, charcoal exports and levies on arms and other illegal imports.

Outside of Kismayo, al-Shabab still controls parts of Jubbaland, a region in southern Somalia.

The militants have been carrying out more frequent attacks in the capital Mogadishu, despite the heavy presence of African Union peacekeepers and US-trained Somali troops.
