GALKA’YO (Sh.M.Network)—At least one person was killed and two injured when gunmen attacked on livestock-herding community in the rural areas located in central Somalia, witnesses said Saturday.
The attack took place Friday afternoon at a pastoral village, just 10 Km away from Galka’yo town, the provincial capital of Mugug region, 750 Km north east of Mogadishu, Somali capital.
“The raiders arrived at our village at around 5:30 p.m. and started shooting men sitting under a tree, causing death of one person and panic wounds,” a witness said, adding that attackers fled the area uncaught.
Cattle rustling and clashes over grazing and farming land are relatively common between communities often escalate into revenge attacks in central Somalia.
