Somali Govt Official shot dead in Mogadishu

Suspected Al Shabaab assassins have killed a senior Somali government official in Mogadishu on Sunday night, the latest in a string of killings in the capital.

Khalid Mohamed Mo’alin, who was a village administrator in Mogadishu’s Yaqshid district was executed by pistol-wielding men, thought to be Al Shabaab.

The murder of Mo’alin was the  third assassination of its kind in the past two days in Mogadishu, a city that has been hit by deadly attacks from Al Shabaab.

Afterwards, Somali security forces have cordoned off the scene of shooting, and launched a manhunt for the suspects, but reports say no arrest was made so far.
