BELEDWEYNE (HOL)—-Unidentified gunmen have killed the former mayor of Buloburde  – a town in the central Hiran region of Somalia, 220km north of the capital Mogadishu – in Beled Weyne on Monday evening.

Abdi Idow Sabriye was shot dead near his home in Beled Weyne after two armed men approached him as he walked out the mosque in the Hawa Tako neighbourhood, according to witnesses who spoke to HOL.

Mr. Sabriye was a mayor of Buloburde during President Abdullahi Yusuf’s Administration.

No group has immediately claimed the responsibility for the murder.

His murder highlights the challenges and security threats facing former government officials who are now primary target for Al-Shabaab.

Beledweyne, an agricultural strategic town that straddles between central Somalia and the neighboring Ethiopia has seen a relative stability since the AMISOM forces together with the Somali National Army forced militants out of the town.
