Somaliland: A young boy shot by a police officer

Mr. Ahmed Mohamed Sahardiid is a young boy that has been sustained in a police shooting that took place in Dami village, Hargeisa on Tuesday.

The shooting occurred after police tried to disperse young boys who clashed in Dami for the past couple of days.

The young boy has been hospitalized and doctors and nurses are coping with the fatal injures that the youngster has sustained. He got several shots in the head and one of his arms.

Just a week ago a lone police man has shot a young boy in police custody and later died of the gunshots.

Police have come under a fire after the spate of shootings targeted to youngesters in Somaliland.

Human rights organizations have condemned the latest police shooting in which they said was an act of brutality.
