Assassination in Africa Somalia: Puntland Information Minister Assassinated (Page 1 of 1)
Mr. Warsame Abdi "Sefta Bananka," Puntland's information minister, was killed by unknown gunmen dressed in military fatigues at a restaurant in Galkayo, a trade town that links Puntland to regions in south-central Somalia, where an insurgency has been raging since early 2007.

Police officials said the killers escaped, but Puntland security forces are doing all they can to capture the assassins.

The late Warsame Abdi becomes the first Cabinet minister since Puntland's formation in 1998 to be killed in the line of duty.
