Somalia: Young man gunned down in Wardhigley, Mogadishu

Mogadishu (hornnews24) – Unidentified gunmen have killed a young man on Thursday at Ged-ja’ayl neighbourhood of Wardhigley District in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

Three men armed with pistols opened fire on the victim who was among dozens of young men in a restaurant. On the face of it, it seemed to be a fore-planned murder.  

The killers have slipped away and they are still at large. Government security men arrived at the scene of the murder for investigation but in vain.

In another development the residents of the area have foiled an attempted adduction of a 6 year old girl.  A young man carrying the child was stopped as he tried to escape with the child.

Police have arrived and arrested the man who is now in custody. The reason of the kidnapping is unclear.  Mogadishu’s security situation has been recently deteriorating.
