3 aid workers shot dead in Somalia
A gunman yesterday killed three aid workers including two World Food Programme employees in central Somalia, a WFP official said.
"An individual opened fire killing outright one WFP staff member and a man working for a cooperating partner. A second WFP staff member was shot and later died as a result of his injuries," WFP said in a statement.
Local residents identified all three as Somalis.
The attack took place near the settlement of Mataban, some 30 kilometres from the Ethiopian border in central Somalia's Hiran region.
