Gunmen kills a civilian in Somali capital Mogadishu

Unidentified assailants have shot and killed a civilian in Mogadishu, the Somali capital on Tuesday night, the latest in series of assassinations in the city for the past few months.

Witnesses said two men armed with pistols have gunned down Liban Omar inside his shop outside a mosque in Dharkenley district and fled the scene before police authorities arrived.

It’s yet unclear the motive behind the murder of the businessman and the identity of the killers as the local officials are yet to comment on the assassination.

Mogadishu has witnesses surge in attacks and killings against security force members and civil servants in the past as the city is under full government control since 2011.
