Somali gunmen stormed a hotel in Mogadishu and grabbed two French journalists on Tuesday, a hotel worker said.

"Several gunmen entered the Sahafi Hotel, pointed guns at the guards and went into the hotel rooms where they took away the two French nationals," the hotel manager who declined to give name told Reuters.

"The two males told me they were journalists," he added.
