Gunmen and the Somali Federal Government soldier separately killed two civilians as heavy fighting occurred in Mogadishu's Yaqshid district late on Saturday night, Garowe Online reports.

Unidentified assailants shot a female cleaner working for Somalia University of Mogadishu in head and chest at Kaasabal-Balaare junction on Sunday according to witnesses.

"I expect that Al Shabaab behind the assassination. It is quite complex to know why a woman free from politics was killed and this shows that such groups don't want progress for our people," said a spokesman for Hodan district commissioner.

In a separate incident, Somalia Federal Government soldier killed unarmed civilian in Gubta neighborhood of Mogadishu's Dayniile district.
