Gunmen kill well-known Elder in Mogadishu

Unidentified assassins have shot and killed a prominent elder in Somali capital, Mogadishu on Wednesday evening, the latest in string of targeted killings in the city over the past few weeks.

Witnesses said pistol-wielding  men have gunned down the elder who was identified as Sa’eed Sheikh Aden inside Bakaro market. The killers escaped the scene of the murder before police arrived shortly.

Dahir Omar, a relative of the slain elder has confirmed the incident to Radio Shabelle by phone. Mr Omar said the motive behind the murder of the renowned elder is yet unknown.

Somali security forces reached the area after the shooting of the elder, and carried out an investigation, but no arrest was made for the killing, according to an eyewitness who also spoke to Radio Shabelle.
