Somalia's Shebab insurgents killed at least 13 people Sunday in a bomb attack on a hotel in the capital Mogadishu, a security official said Monday, updating an earlier death toll.
"The devastation was huge, and so far 13 people, all of them innocent civilians, have been confirmed dead," government security officer Ahmed Ali said. "Some of the wounded died last night, while other bodies were recovered under the wreckage of nearby buildings."
Initial reports had put the death toll at six.
