In Somalia, the secret services mistakenly shot the minister

Somalia’s public works minister, 31-year-old Abdullahi Sheikh Abas, was shot dead by security forces who mistook him for an armed Islamist, the country’s authorities say.

The minister was killed in his car next to the presidential palace in Mogadishu, the capital of the country.

In connection with the emergency, the President of the country Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed interrupted his visit to Ethiopia.

Analyst Abdullahi Abdi told the BBC that similar errors were made by the Somali security service before – the level of tension in the country where the authorities are fighting the attacks of Islamists is too high.
