Ras Kamboni militia gun down a civilian in Kismayo:Witnesses
[Shabelle] Reports coming in from the southern port city of Kismayo said a civilian man was bumped off on Friday by pro-government Ras Kamboni Militia fighters.

Mohamed Ahmed, a young football player was shot in head and chest in five times by the fighters inside a big market in the city, a former Al shabab stronghold town located just some 500 Km south of Mogadishu.

Following the murder Ras Kamboni Militia ordered locals not to remove his body from the scene, according to the eye witnesses who spoke to Shabelle Media Network station in Mogadishu by phone.

The reason behind the execution of the civilian man is yet to be established by the leaders of the pro-government Somali militia Ras Kamboni in the city.
