Deputy Governor of Benadir regional administration has vowed a full scale operation will be launched to make sure that the capital city is enough safe.

Deputy Governor of Benadir regional administration Warsame Mohamed "Warsame Jodax" officially announced the new measures to secure days after double suicide explosions that hit a hotel in Mogadishu killed more than 10 security forces.

"Our intention is to develop the security in the capital city and we will do more on that end." Warsame Jodax said.
