Gunmen kill a civilian in Mogadishu, killers escaped
Unknown gunmen killed a civilian in Mogadishu, Somali capital on Friday, the latest in string of targeted assassinations on public servants and security force members by suspected Al shabaab elements.
Eyewitnesses said assailants armed with pistols have shot and killed a man who was identified as Abdullahi Ga’mey at a cafe near Fagah junction in Mogadishu’s Yaqshid district.
The killers managed to escape the scene shortly before police arrived, according to the witnesses who spoke to Radio Shabelle by phone from the shooting site.
The motive behind the murder of Ga’mey and the identities of the assassins remained unclear, but police said they are probing into the incident, and making searches for the suspects.
