MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — Somalia police say that security forces have ended an overnight siege of a beach restaurant by al-Shabab gunmen in which eight people were killed.

Capt. Mohamed Hussein said Friday that six civilians and two soldiers were killed at the Benadir Beach restaurant, a hangout spot for the capital city's youth.

Two armed extremists attacked the restaurant Thursday night after a suicide car bomber, who was apparently heading for the establishment, detonated his explosives-laden vehicle when security forces opened fire on the car after the driver refused their orders to stop.
