SOMALIA VIOLENCE!

By News desk

 

MOGADISHU (Sunatimes) - A senior leader in the Alshabaab militant group has died in a hospital in the outskirt of Mogadishu after suffering severe spinal column wounds in heavy shelling in the north of Mogadishu over the weekend, reports say.

Sheikh Mukhtar Robow ‘Abu Mansur’, who is on the U.S terror list has died in a hospital in Afgoi town, 30km north of Mogadishu on Wednesday after days he spent in the hospital for bad wounds.

“He was badly wounded in mortar shelling in Karan district along with the American Abu Mansur Al-Amriki” Alshabab sources told state run radio Mogadishu on Wednesday.

Other sources told Sunatimes that Robow died in a hospital after doctors failed to cope with his bad wounds.

Officials often refer to Robow as the main conduit to the Alshabaab leader Ahmed Godane..

As al-Shabaab’s operational commander in Somalia, he is believed to have had a hand in everything from finances to operational planning.

No comments could be reached from Alshabaab officials confirming the death of their top leader.

For the last two years, Somalia has become a hub for Alqaeda fugitives as the defeated Yemeni-Alqaeda rebels have flowed into Somalia which they considered as their safest place to stay in.
