Gunmen wearing suicide vests have on Saturday stormed the Somali national parliament complex in Mogadishu, killing at least ten people. The parliament was stormed while MPs were meeting. Deputy Minister for national security Ibrahim Yarow Issack said Somali government forces shot dead all gunmen who were involved in the attack. Seven al Shabaab suicide commandos are believed to have been involved in the attack. Three legislators have been injured in the attack. Most of the legislators evacuated out of the back of the building. Al Shabaab has claimed responsibility, saying its ‘martyrdom seekers’ attacked the parliament building. Somali Prime Minister, Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed condemned the attack, but applauded the swift response of the Somali national army and AMISOM security forces. “The security forces are working hard to contain the situation. All Members of Parliament have all been accounted for and the facts surrounding the incident are currently under investigation,” said Ahmed in a press release sent to newsrooms.
