7 Dead in fresh shooting at somalia's capital
« on: April 04, 2016, 09:55:29 AM »
Seven people, including three intelligence security officers, died Saturday in three shootings in Mogadishu, according to witnesses in Somalia's capital.

The violence came a day after confirmation from a U.S. official that an airstrike had killed a senior member of the al-Shabab militant group. 

Two of the shootings in Mogadishu involved masked or unidentified gunmen, with one attack killing two officers with Somalia's National Intelligence Agency. The third incident occurred when government security forces carrying out an operation opened fire on a crowd protesting their actions, killing three and wounding one.

The death of Al-Shabab assassin Hassan Ali Dhore occurred in an airstrike Thursday. The Somali government last year put him on a "most wanted" list of 12 people involved in terror attacks in Mogadishu.

Another suspected U.S. airstrike Friday was reported to have killed a commander known as "Qorilow," the head of al-Shabab forces in Jannaale town, and three other militants.  A separate strike Saturday killed six militants in the Lower Juba region, according to local officials and residents.
