KISMAYO (Sh.M.Network) —Unidentified gunmen have shot and killed a resident in Somalia’s southern port city of Kismayo, located just 500 Km south of Mogadishu, reports said.
Witnesses said two assailants armed with pistols have on Saturday night murdered the innocent civilian in the city and escaped the area. Government forces have reached in the shooting scene and made searches over the incident, but no one was arrested so far.
There were no immediate reports of the reason behind the cold blood killing against the young man in Kismayo city controlled by Somali government forces with the support of Kenyan army serving under the African Union mission in Somalia.
Kismayo, a port city in southern Somalia had been a main Al-Shabaab stronghold for three years, and fell early this month to the allied forces, a major success for AMISOM forces since deployment in Somalia in 2007.
