20+ Dead in Somali Restaurant Attack [VIDEO]

At least 20 people are dead after al-Shabab militants stormed a beachfront restaurant Thursday evening in the Somali capital of Mogadishu. Security officials ended the siege on Friday after a long firefight, with special forces reportedly going room to room in pursuit of the gunmen who took refuge inside the restaurant after killing people. Witnesses told authorities that the assailants, allegedly affiliated with the Somali affiliate of al Qaeda, shouted “Allahu akbar” before opening fire on restaurant patrons.
