MOGADISHU, Somalia — Four car bombs were detonated by Islamic extremists outside a hotel in the capital, Mogadishu, on Friday afternoon killing at least 20 people and injuring 17, said police.
After the three explosions in front of the hotel, a fourth blast hit as medics attempted to rescue the injured.

Some of the victims were burned beyond recognition, he said.
Somali security forces shot dead four gunmen who tried to storm through a hole blown into the hotel’s wall but did not succeed in entering, he said.
