executed humanitarian workers

Eight aid workers were taken from a health facility run by a local NGO in Somalia and executed.  According to the government of Somalia, they were “very young.”  Different sources give different numbers of the slain – we are using what Zamzam Foundation reported.

The facility was operated by the Zamzam Foundation.   In a statement the foundation said the eight were taken by armed gunman on Wednesday and their bodies were found on Thursday dumped along a highway. This happened near the capital city of Mogadishu.

Thus far, no one has claimed responsibility.
