A Somali man working for the United Nations World Food Program (WFD) has been shot dead in the southern region of Lower Shabelle.
Three armed men gunned down a UN aid worker, identified by a UN source as Abdinasir Aden Muse, while he was leaving a mosque in the town of Merka on Friday, witnesses told Press TV correspondent.
He died on the way to hospital, our correspondent said.
The incident comes about two weeks after an Italian aid worker was injured when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Merka.
UN workers in Somalia have been the target of increasing attacks this year. Friday’s killing brought to 13 the number of aid workers killed in Somalia this year.
