Somalia Wants SAfrica To Explain Mob Killing of Its National

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Jun 2013 10:24 AM

Somalian government leaders are demanding answers from South Africa about the murder of a Somali man in Port Elizabeth last week.
 
Somali President Hassan Sheik Mohamud urged his South African counterpart, President Jacob Zuma, to “act immediately” to arrest those responsible for the killing of Abdi Nasir Mahmoud Good, 25, stoned to death by a mob May 30, al-Jazeera reported.

The television network aired graphic footage of Good lying in the middle of a street while a mob pelts him with rocks and motorists and pedestrians pass by.

Local media said Good, who was also stabbed, was attacked while attempting to protect his shop from looters. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis live in South Africa, and many in the community say the government there has repeatedly failed to act against anti-Somali violence there.

In 2008, more than 50 foreign African nationals were killed in a spate of violence against foreign nationals across Somalia.
