Anger in Mogadishu after police kill civilian in COVID-19 curfew

A police officer in Somalia’s capital has been arrested in the fatal shooting of at least one civilian while enforcing coronavirus restrictions, according to officials.

The shooting on Friday evening sparked protests in Mogadishu that continued on Saturday with crowds of young men burning tires and demanding justice.

There has been growing anger among some residents over alleged abuses by security forces, including beatings while enforcing virus-related restrictions.

Shouts of “No police, no curfew” could be heard as protesters took to the streets and damaged a police landmark at a city roundabout.

The country’s police chief on Saturday fired the commissioner in charge of security in Bondhere district where the shooting took place.
