Mogadishu: Al Shabaab Kills Comedian Who Made Fun Of Them

Egypt Independent

Gunmen shot dead a well-known comedian known for poking fun at Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabab insurgents in the Somali capital Mogadishu, officials and colleagues said Wednesday.

Abdi Jeylani Malaq Marshale, in his late thirties or early forties, was killed late Tuesday, minutes after leaving Kulmiye radio station, where he worked as drama producer and performer.

"Two men shot and seriously injured Marshale... the comedian was later pronounced dead," said police lieutenant Mohamed Gaal, adding that "unfortunately the assailants escaped."
