MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — Three women cruelly killed in two separate incidents in Mogadishu and Lower Shabelle region on Thursday night, Somali Update reports.
The first incident occurred in Dirir-weyn, a small village between Leego and Wanla-weyn towns in Lower Shabelle region, about 90KM south of Mogadishu, where gunmen abducted two middle-aged women from their homes and later thrown the headless bodies on the road.
According to family members who sought anonymity due to safety concerns, the two women were neighbors who used to trade on Khat (Miraa) and eventually slaughtered.
"About four gunmen raided the homes and took out the women. We do not know the reason, but later people saw their severed heads and bodies lying nearby road.” Said one cousin to one of the two victims.
The incident caught residents in Dirir-weyn and nearby locations on shock.
Residents reluctantly rejected to name the perpetrators but the militant group Al-Shabab are known to target Khat traders who sell to government soldiers.
In the second incident, unidentified gunmen shot and killed Halima Elmi Mohamed, a female delegate who involved in the selection of parliamentary members from Galmudug region during Somalia’s 2016/2017 indirect elections.
According to Mrs. Halima’s son, she was working in a recently opened cosmetics shop in Seybiyano neighborhood in Hodan District where she was shot and killed.
Members of the security forces reached the area and started investigation but no arrest was made.
She becomes the 23rd delegate member who involved the selection of Somalia Parliamentarians killed since February.  The latest delegate member was shot in Mogadishu on May 10th.
