Al-Shabaab extremists killed at least 31 people in a nightlong siege at a popular restaurant in Somalia’s capital that ended early Thursday morning. A suicide car bomb on Wednesday evening detonated outside Pizza House and Posh Treats in Mogadishu. Gunmen stormed the Pizza House following the explosion, opening fire on customers and attempting to repel the security forces gathered outside. Witnesses recounted hiding behind tables and curtains to take cover from the bullets. Nearly 40 people sustained injuries from the attack.
