Gun Attack Kills Six In Somalia Capital

At least six people, including two Turkish nationals, have been killed, following a gun attack in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

Six people, including two Turkish nationals, were killed when unidentified gunmen attacked a minibus carrying workers to a Turkish-run hospital in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday, police said.

The gunmen, who were in a car, opened fire at the minibus as it passed in Mogadishu’s Hodan district.

“Gunmen opened fire on minibus. Two Turkish and four Somalis died. Five Turks and a Kenyan were also injured,” Ali Ahmed, a police officer at Hodan district police station, said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. It is suspected that militants from the terrorist group al-Shabaab, which is aligned with al-Qaeda, were responsible for the attack.
