The latest information emerging from a hotel which the Al Qaeda-linked, Al Shabaab militants raided late afternoon in the coastal Somalia city of Kismayu disclose that the death toll is rising but can not be factually reported up to this moment as fighting for supremacy for the hotel grounds is still on.

Hassan Gesey, director of Mogadishu-based media outlet Radio Dalsan, confirmed to the Star that Hodan was killed in the attack along with her husband.

The attack began when an explosives-laden auto detonated at the front entrance of the Asasey hotel, a popular meeting spot for regional officials and visitors from the diaspora.

The militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack, saying their fighters broke into the hotel, killing several security forces.

It said Nalayeh had recently returned from Canada. It added that consular officials in Nairobi are in contact with local authorities to gather information. Her Instagram page alone has 152,000 followers. She founded Integration TV, an global web-based video production company aimed at Somali viewers around the world. She said the media cast the community in an unfair light.

Ms. Girouard worked with Ms. Nalayeh from November, 2016, to April, 2017. Once, she interviewed former Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne for Integration TV.

"She was an fantastic person with an awesome heart", said Mohamed Gialo, a close friend of Nalayeh, who said she helped find his daughter employment after his daughter graduated university.

"Hodan's endless positivity and her love for people was inspiring".

Nalayeh was born in Somalia in 1976, but spent most of her life in Canada, first in Alberta and then in Toronto. "Her attractive spirit shined through her work and the way she treated people", Omar Suleiman, a Texas-based imam who knew the victim, wrote on social media. "She was trying to change the narrative of Somalia".

"Being patient with my brothers and sisters who have witnessed war and conflict is the least I can do", she said in a July 5 Twitter post.

"People save all their lives to have a retirement b the beach, yet, we have plenty of it and can not see its value".
