A Thoughtful, Analytical Approach to NGO Security

Aid worker attacked by gunmen in Somalia

On 19 February 2009 gunmen attacked a Somali aid worker in Afgoye near Mogadishu, killing one security guard.

The armed men attacked the home of Mohamed Hassan Orow, the head of a local NGO, sparking a fire-fight with his private security guards.

Two bystanders were reportedly injured in the incident.

Employees of humanitarian organizations are regularly the target of attacks in Somalia. Most NGO’s have resorted to using private security guards.
