Gunmen in Somalia kidnap German nurse working for Red Cross

A German nurse working for the International Committee of the Red Cross has been kidnapped in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

The abduction happened inside a Red Cross compound in Mogadishu’s Wadajir district, reports say.

This comes barely a day after a World Health Organisation employee was killed in Mogadishu’s Bakara market.

Somalia is one of the world’s most dangerous places for humanitarian aid workers. More than 60 aid workers were either killed or abducted in the last two years.
“We are deeply concerned about the safety of our colleague,” said Daniel O’Malley, ICRC’s deputy head of delegation for Somalia. “She is a nurse who was working every day to save lives and improve the health of some of Somalia’s most vulnerable people.”

The ICRC said in a statement that the abduction happened around 8 pm local time on Wednesday night when armed men entered the ICRC compound in Mogadishu.

  5. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
