MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — At least two killed and ten others wounded after a lone gunman shot at people at a food aid distribution site in Abudwak town in Galgadud region, in central Somalia, District Commissioner said.
Abudwak District Commissioner Muse Mohamed Ahmed said the gunman stormed and started shooting at the people who were at the food distribution site where hundreds of drought-displaced people were queuing to receive dry food donated by Islamic Relief.
"Two guards of the site died, and unfortunately 10 others, including the recent displaced people injured. Some of them seriously injured.” The District Commissioner said.

The food aid handout was canceled after the shooting.
The motive of the attack was unknown as security forces started manhunt to get the murderer. Local sources claim that the gunman’s motive was related to previous clan feud but authorities are yet to confirm such claims.
"We have received reports that the gunman escaped. Security forces were sent to arrest him.” The commissioner added.
