Mogadishu: Unidentified gunmen have shot dead a member of the new Somali Parliament, Xinhua reported on Sunday.
According to the state radio, Mustaf Haji Mohamed was murdered as he left a mosque in Mogadishu`s Waberi district Saturday.
The assassinated MP was newly elected to the 275-member Parliament.
The killers escaped after the attack, for which no one has claimed responsibility.
