Al-Shabab kills Somali lawmaker | Arab News
Gunmen from Somali militant group Al-Shabab killed a regional lawmaker on Saturday after he had taken his wife to hospital in the capital Mogadishu, the group and officials said.
Aden Haji Hussein, a legislator from the semi-autonomous Puntland region, was sprayed with bullets when he returned to his parked car outside the hospital, witnesses said. The gunmen were in a minibus that blocked his way.
Al Shabab often targets officials and politicians. On Tuesday Al-Shabab militants stormed a government building housing two ministries in the heart of Mogadishu, killing at least 10 people.
