Shabaab Retreat Peacfully from Garbharey

Ibrahim Hussein Du'a le, the WFP official, was killed in the outskirts of Garbaharey, the provincial capital of Gedo region next to the Ethiopian border.

A relative of the victim told Radio Garowe that he could not think of any reason why Mr. Du'ale was targeted, but a senior member of Al Shabaab has spoken out against the killing.

"The person who killed him [WFP official] will be brought to court and I send my condolences to the family," said Sheikh Hassan Jibril, Al Shabaab's top commander in Gedo, who claimed to be inside Garbaharey.

Yesterday, Ethiopian-backed clan militia peacefully captured Garbaharey after Al Shabaab insurgents withdrew towards the town of Bardhere, also in Gedo.

Somalia is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for aid workers to operate.
