Outspoken MP Amina Mohamed Abdi Killed In Beledweyne

Member of Parliament Amina Mohamed Abdi and at least 10 others were killed last night in the city of Beledweyne after twin explosions rocked the city.

Amina was known to be a staunch critic of Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo’s government and spoke openly about the disappearance of Ikran Tahlil.

“Lawmaker Amina, who was known for her role in the struggle for justice for the late Ikran Tahlil, and who almost had her parliamentary seat looted, was assassinated tonight in an attempt to disrupt justice and discourage anyone who seeks justice” said Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble
