Somalia: Jubbaland Forces ‘Kill Civilian, Rape 7 Girls’ in Kismayo

Somalia’s Interim Jubbaland Administration forces have been accused of a civilian murder and rape of seven girls in Kismayo, the state’s seaside capital on Saturday.

Confirming the incident, Col Abdirashid Mo’alin Gaas who is a senior Somali army commander in the city said Jubbaland soldiers killed a civilian at Bal’ad area.

Jubbaland soldiers have shot the unarmed man multiple times on the head outside a shopping mall in the area in broad-day light, according to a witness.

Mr Gaas said before the killing of the civilian person, Jubbaland forces have raped seven young girls in their house in the city at gunpoint.

The officials of Jubbaland State did not respond to Radio Shabelle’s repeated requests for comment and information about the accusations of the Somali army colonel.
