The Somali government has fired two top security officials after twin blasts blasts and a siege left at least 27 people dead yesterday.
The Islamist militant group Al-Shabab said it carried out the bombings.
The siege started yesterday afternoon after a car bomb was driven into the Nasahablod 2 Hotel.
A few minutes later, a second car bomb targeted the former parliament house nearby.
Sporadic gunfire continued inside the hotel throughout the night, witnesses said.
Provincial leaders, police and intelligence officials were gathering for a meeting with the government to agree on a joint strategy against Al-Shabab, due to take place today.
