Hostages held, 9 killed in attack at Somalia restaurant

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Gunmen posing as military forces were holding an unknown number of hostages inside a popular restaurant in Somalia’s capital in an attack that began when a car bomb exploded at the gate, police and a witness said Wednesday night, while the extremist group al-Shabab claimed responsibility.

Two of the gunmen were shot dead and 10 hostages were rescued but five other attackers were thought to remain inside, cutting off electricity to complicate security forces’ efforts to end the siege, Capt. Mohamed Hussein said.

      I don’t care either. Just another day in a Muslim shithole.

    Atrocities are being committed all over the world. If only there were some common thread to such events, some unifying factor, so that we could defend ourselves by refusing admittance to people who have that common characteristic!

      Obama and Loretta Lynch had the FBI use a super Computer to try and find the motive behind the devout homophobic muslim that obeyed the quran to kill gays in Orlando last year on June 12th.
      The common thread for all of the muslim terrorists seems to be mental illness where you praise god in arabic and only want to kill non-muslims.
