There have been allegations the suspects were spreading HIV through the injections
Police in Mogadishu have arrested a woman suspected of injecting an auto-rickshaw driver with allegedly contaminated blood adding to an increasing of such cases reported in the city recently.
Mogadishu residents have claimed the blood could contain HIV but there have been no medical reports to confirm the allegations.
The incident which happened near the CID headquarters along KM4 caused a traffic snarl-up as auto-rickshaw (popularly referred to as bajaj) drivers jammed the area. It is not clear why the women (in all cases reported women) target bajaj drivers in the city.
The bajaj driver was also arrested for questioning.
