Suicide Bombing of Mogadishu Claims Life of Renowned Somalian Journalist


A Somali journalist who was a staunch critic of jihadist group Al-Shabaab was killed by a suicide bomber as he left a restaurant in the capital Mogadishu on Saturday as stated by officials and colleagues.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the blast, which officials said killed Abdiaziz Mohamud Guled, the director of government-owned Radio Mogadishu.

Two others sustained injuries from the attack, a director at Somali National Television named as Sharmarke Mohamed Warsame and a driver.
