    Somalia’s public works minister shot dead in capital

    Somalia’s Minister of Public Works and Reconstruction Abbas Abdullahi Siraji was killed in Mogadishu on Wednesday in what was apparently an accidental shooting, government and police sources said.
    In a statement, the government said it was “deeply saddened” by the death of Siraji, the youngest member of the Somali cabinet, who grew up in a Kenyan refugee camp before winning election in 2016 and being named a minister by President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed. Siraji’s vehicle was mistakenly shot at by government security guards outside the presidential palace, a senator, Ilyas Abdulahi, told AFP.
    Sources said the gunmen were security guards for another government official, many of whom are escorted around the capital by armed guards in pick-up trucks.
