Death of a Peacemaker

My friend Yahya was asleep at home with his wife when several heavily armed vehicles rolled to a stop outside his house around 2 a.m. last Monday. It was raining in Mogadishu, and the patter of droplets ob scured the sounds of the night. A group of roughly 10 assassins, wearing masks or scarves around their faces, used a ladder to scale the back wall of Yahya’s compound. To find their way in the dark, they had flashlights tied to the barrels of their Kalashnikovs. Yahya’s guards, some of them sleeping, were taken by surprise and handcuffed. The killers entered the house, which apparently was unlocked. Some of the men made their way to a sec ond-floor bedroom and woke Yahya and his wife. They demanded valuables and took Yahya’s laptop. Then they led Yahya to a corridor where they executed him. First they shot him several times with an AK-47, then two or three more times to the mouth and head with a pistol.Full Story
