Somalia:Gov't soldier opens fire on civilian Bus, kills 3
(Sh. M. Network)-Witnesses say a soldier dressed in Government military uniform has opened fire on a vehicle carrying dozens of passengers in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, killing at least three travelers.
Wednesday attack took place at Sanaa junction, east of Mogadishu, where Eyewitnesses said that two persons who were reportedly members of the passengers and the driver of the car were killed in the spot while another woman was injured.
"This act is a part of the ongoing attacks on civilian buses in Mogadishu by gangs who intend to loot and take the passengers from their possessions," said a driver who spoke with Shabelle Media on condition of anonymity.
Shortly afterwards, Somali Security forces have sealed off the shooting area and began search operations, but reports indicated the killer has beat feet from the scene, before the army arrived.
