Two car bombs have exploded outside a hotel in the Somali capital Mogadishu, killing at least 10 people.

The blasts were at the Jazeera hotel which is frequented by Somali politicians and foreigners.

Reports say the blasts were followed by exchanges of fire between security forces and the attackers.

The Somali Islamist militant group al-Shabab, which was driven out of Mogadishu in 2011, said it carried out the attack.
