Separate killings reported in and outside Mogadishu

Unknown gunmen are reported to have carried out two separate killings in and around Somali Capital, Mogadishu on Sunday evening, police and witnesses said.

Two pistol-wielding men, believed to be Al Shabaab assassins have shot and killed a prominent elder in hamar-Jadiid district in Mogadishu after the sunset, a police officer said.

Separately, a local businessman was killed by unidentified gunmen inside his shop at former Agriculture college, located on the highway linking Mogadishu to Afgoye district.

No group has yet claimed credit for both assassinations, but police pointed out the finger of the blame on Al shabaab who often carry out such killings in Mogadishu.
