Reports from the port city of Marka, Lower Shabelle indicate that at least 6 civilians were allegedly killed overnight by AMISOM soldiers who were conducting an operation in the city.
Among those killed are a father and his children who were at their home at the time of the killing.
Some other civilians were hospitalized, as some others were taken in by the peace keeping troops from Burundi.
This happened after AMISOM came under bomb attack yesterday in the town and has been reportedly pursuing suspects. But residents say that AMISOM extrajudicial killing is slowly driving out residents from the town.
AMISOM has yet to comment on this and attempts to reach them was not successful.
Last month AMISOM came under condemnation from federal parliament and human rights organization after soldiers reportedly shot dead more than 10 civilians in Marka.
