Mogadishu Mayor Mohamed Thabit on Saturday condoned the terror attack on the city's Hotel Nasahblood.
"This horrific attack shows again the need for tangible changes and accountability" the Mayor tweeted following the attack. At least 18 people were killed in the attack when a truck exploded outside the hotel.
Alshabaab immediately claim responsibility for the attack and a siege that followed. The attack comes a fortnight after Somalia's deadliest single attack that killed 400 plus mostly civilians.
