The death toll from an Al-Shabab car bomb attack on a hotel in the Somali capital Wednesday has risen to 10 and is sure to increase further, police said.Mogadishu police said some militants had apparently burst into the hotel.In other incidents, Somali security forces killed 17 Al-Shabab fighters including the head of their intelligence unit and a man suspected to have orchestrated a deadly attack on a Kenyan university in 2015, government officials said.In the second incident, Abdirashid Hassan Abdi, the semi-autonomous Jubbaland region's security minister said its forces had killed 16 Al-Shabab fighters in Bulagadud, some 30 km to the north of the Indian Ocean port of Kismayu.Among the dead, he said, was Mohamud Ali Dulyadeyn, suspected to have been the mastermind of an April 2015 attack on Garissa University that killed 148 people, the worst such assault in Kenya in almost 20 years.
