Breaking News; Gunmen Storm Somalia's Education Ministry

At least 8 died when gunmen stormed Somalia's Education Ministry building in the country's capital Tuesday, sparking a gun battle with security forces that left at least eight people dead, police said.
The Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab is responsible for the attack in the center of Mogadishu, group spokesman Abu Musab said.
The battle began after a car bomb exploded at the building's main gate. A plume of black smoke rose from the area early Tuesday afternoon.
Security guards at the building, and, later, Somali special forces battled the gunmen inside, witnesses said.
 By 2 p.m., special forces had ended the attack, city police Capt. Mohamud Abdi said. Besides the eight dead, at least 10 other people were injured, said Ali Hassan, a man who was helped from the building.
The special forces helped people out of the building while the attack was underway, Abdi said. Hassan confirmed that a rescue operation was happening inside.
Somalia-based Al-Shabaab has battled the country's government for years, aiming to overturn it and turn the nation into a fundamentalist Islamic state.
