Following a series of deadly suicide auto bombs inside Somalia's capital Mogadishu today, al Qaeda's East African branch, Shabaab, has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The two hotels are located just a few meters away from Criminal Investigation Division headquarters in an area of restaurants and bars.
A witness who was inside the hotel at the time said on condition of anonymity that the front of the building was destroyed by the force of the explosions, which blew out windows.
"The death toll may rise because some people are still missing".
"The target of the attack was the Sahafi hotel and even though the attackers used vehicle bombs to make their way into the premises, the security forces stopped them", said Ahmed.
But Bashir Hassan Farah, another ambulance medic, later said he saw 20 dead bodies, majority civilians.
"Most of these people were civilians and almost 20 of them died in minibuses that were passing by the road when the blast occurred", he added.
The blasts came a day before the first anniversary of a truck bombing that left more than 500 dead in Mogadishu, the worst ever attack in Somalia which was blamed on Al-Shabaab. The head of a local ambulance service tells VOA his company transported 45 wounded people to the hospital. The blasts appeared to be suicide bombs that detonated near the perimeter wall of the hotel.
The militant group al-Shabab, which has waged an insurgency for more than 10 years, said it carried out the attack. These Shabaab assaults have forced African Union troops to withdraw from several cities and towns in southern Somalia.
