Somalia: A Soldier Guns Down a Civilian in Mogadishu

Somali government police officer was reported to have killed a man today. The officer shot the national at Sanca junction in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

The residents reported that the man killed after they both quarreled for a short period of time. They said that the deceased attempted to stub the police officer with a knife before he was killed.

It is not the first Somali government police were involved in killings within the capital. It was only two days ago after a police officer shot dead a taxi driver and his passenger in Mogadishu.
