Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud’s nephew has been shot dead in the capital, Mogadishu.

Gunmen opened fire on Dr Liban Osman’s vehicle as it was travelling through the city’s Wadajir neighbourhood early on Wednesday.

Both Dr Osman, who reportedly worked as a doctor at the presidential palace, and another man, thought to be a lawyer, died in the attack.

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