A Minneapolis Businessman killed in Somalia

A Minneapolis-based Somali lawyer has been buried a day after he was shot near in presidential palace in the Somali capital, Radio Garowe Reports.

51-year-old Bashir Ahmed Abdi was shot down while riding in a car Wednesday in villa Somali, capital of Mogadishu. The purpose of Bashir’s visit was to help the prime Minister, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed in the process of establishing the new government.

“Several bullet hit him, so far, no group claims but investigation are still going on,” said Bahir’s Cousin Mukhtar Osman

Osman cited that Bashir left Minneapolis two weeks ago, claimed that had been invited to Somalia by friends in the government include Premier, and that he was staying in the presidential house.

“Bashir received a call from several MP’s and the prime minister when he was in Minneapolis so that he help them how to build the new government led by the premier,” Osman added.

Bashir was a businessman in Minneapolis. He was a lawyer in Somalia before he moved to the United States. He leaves behind a wife and four children.

Somalia has had no effective central government for 19 years and although the administration of President Ahmed and Premier Abdullahi has the backing of the United Nations and AU, he faces a stubborn insurgency from the insurgent groups.
