Police kill Somali assassins

Police kill ‘assassins set to target Somali minister’

Four would-be assassins have been killed by the police in Mogadishu, Somalia’s Deputy Police Commissioner Zakia Hussen has announced on social media.

The three men and one woman were planning to target the country’s minister of education.

Last month, a bomb attack in the office of the Mogadishu mayor killed seven people, including the mayor.

Islamist militant group al-Shabab said it was behind the attack.

The group frequently carries out attacks in Mogadishu in an attempt to topple the government.

Al-Shabab has not commented on Ms Hussen’s statement.
