A Turkish man was shot dead on Tuesday in Mogadishu when gunmen attacked the car he was travelling in with a senior manager from Turkish Airlines , a spokeswoman for the national carrier said.
Saadettin Dogan, security chief at a company providing services to Turkish Airlines, died after suffering a head wound, the spokeswoman said.
In July 2013, a car loaded with explosives rammed into an office housing Turkish embassy staff in the Somali capital, killing three people. The attack was claimed by al Shabaab rebels.
Turkey is a key ally of the Somali government. It was a major contributor to the humanitarian aid effort at the height of the 2011 famine and Ankara continues to build hospitals and dispatch aid across Somalia.Last Mod: 27 Mayıs 2014, 17:12
