Assailants have gunned down a young Somali man in the capital, Mogadishu on Saturday night, the latest in a string of attacks by suspected Al Shabaab assassins.
A witness, speaking to Radio Shabelle confirmed that two pistol-wielding hooded men have shot and killed at Via Rome area in Hamarweyne district on Saturday evening.
