UPDATE 1- Suicide car bombers hit hotel in Somalia's capital
Guards at Hotel Sahafi and CID officers opened fire after the blasts, police added. Then, about 20 minutes later, a third explosion hit the busy street, witnesses said.
It was too early to give details of casualties, Mohammed Hussein, a police officer, told Reuters.
"The blasts targeted Hotel Sahafi which is just opposite the CID," he said.
No group immediately claimed responsibility, but Islamists from the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab group have mounted regular attacks in the capital. (Reporting by Abdi Sheikh; Writing by Duncan Miriri; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
