|Al-Shabab vows 'massive' Somali war|
Al-Shabab fighters have attacked a hotel in Mogadishu, the Somali capital, killing at least 35 people, a day after declaring a massive war.
Members of al-Shabab, disguised as government security forces, launched the attack on Tuesday at the Muna Hotel, which is known to host many Somali government officials and politicians.
Eight parliamentarians were killed in the attack.
"It happened when two suicide bombers detonated themselves," Abdirahman Yariisow, Somalia's information minister, who was at the hotel, told Al Jazeera.
"The security was there, but for some reason, they managed their way in and started shooting. No one was expecting this kind of atrocity.
"This shows how al-Shabab is brutal; they never respected our call [to stop the fighting] for the holy month of Ramadan."
