At least 28 dead in Al Shabaab attack on Mogadishu hotel

In tonight's edition: Al Shabaab strikes again at the heart of Somalia's capital, Gambians have just one day to wait before the arrival of their new president, and in Morocco an old-fashioned moped is still popular.


Somali extremist group Al Shabaab claims responsibility for a fatal armed raid on a hotel in Mogadishu. At least a dozen people were killed before the siege was brought to an end by security forces.

Also, there's less than a day to go before Gambia’s new leader arrives back from Senegal. The hope is that Adama Barrow's return will draw a line under the political crisis sparked by his ascent to the top job.

And we head to Morocco, where hipster teens feed their need for speed with trusty mopeds - but time and tastes catch up with even the most beloved of classics.
