A suicide car bomber detonated near a hotel in Somalia's capital Monday morning, killing and injuring a number of people, police said.

The attack occurred near the Weheliye hotel on the busy Maka Almukarramah road, where ambulances rushed to the scene to move the victims to hospitals, the Somali state run news agency (SOMA) reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, it added, noting that extremist group al-Shabab has often targeted hotels, government's buildings in Mogadishu.
