Somalia's deputy chief prosecutor has been shot dead by three masked men in Mogadishu, officials say - shortly after the UK reopened its embassy in the city.

Ahmad Shaykh Nur Maalin was attacked after he left a city centre mosque.

He is the most senior official to be killed in Mogadishu since a new government took office last year.
