Gunmen Kill A Civilian Outside Mogadishu
Unidentified gunmen have shot and killed a Somali civilian near Mogadishu on Friday night, the latest incident in the Horn of Africa country beset by conflict.
Abdirashid Dahir Hassan was gunned down just after walking out of a mosque in the village, where he performed the evening prayers and heading to his house.
Residents in Elasha Biyaha located on the outskirts of the capital reported that the assailants fled the crime scene immediately before the arrival of the police officers.
It’s unclear the motive behind the assassination, but, the witnesses said the killers took the private car of the slain civilian before escaping the area.
Late Hassan was a student at one of the universities in Mogadishu.
Somali security forces cordoned off the scene and launched an investigation into the murder. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the pupils’ killing.
