“Gunmen raided his home and shot him in the presence of his family,” police official Aden Hussein told.
“We believe it was Al-Shabaab who killed him,” said Hussein, who is based in Somalia’s Hiraan province, of which Beledweyne is the capital city.
The slain officer has been identified as Nuur Adde, a colonel in the Somali army.
Al-Shabaab, speaking via an affiliate radio station and website, claimed responsibility for the officer’s murder.
