Somalia says one fighter held, other 2 inside hotel

Somali security forces seized one fighter alive and another two remained inside a hotel in the capital Mogadishu that they had earlier attacked, Somalia's information minister said on Tuesday.

"Three men disguised as government (troops) attacked the hotel. One has been captured alive and the other two are still inside the hotel. There is fighting going on. Government officials were killed, but we have not established the number of dead," Information Minister Abdirahman Omar Osman told Reuters.

A spokesman for the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia said earlier that at least 15 people had been killed.
