AMISOM Troops have countered the terror attack on the Somali parliament building, killing all the gunmen who had climbed to the top of the building.
25 people are confirmed dead after militants stormed the Somali parliament buildings early Saturday, intelligence sources report.
Police manning the gate and 2 soldiers were killed in the attack. Bodies of the suicide bombers were strewn across the compound.
Somali legislators inside the building escaped unhurt after AMISOM troops managed to shepherd them out of the building through the backdoor.
AMISOM troops came in and neutralized the threat by killing the group of militants who had climbed to the top of the building.
Militants employed a strategy which allowed a first group to bomb the gates and distract the security while a second group stormed the building.
